You Are My 'I-Love-You'

This week Feed My Books is about Motherhood, and this book immediately came to mind -- You Are My I Love You, based on the poem by Maryann K. Cusimano. Here is a peak at part of this poem...

I am your parent you are my child
I am your quiet place, you are my wild
I am your calm face, you are my giggle
I am your wait, you are my wiggle
I am your favorite book, you are my new lines
I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine
I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo
I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you

This tender book celebrates the beautiful relationship of parents with their children. I love the reminder of the incredible change and blessing children bring into our lives. In the busy-ness and frustrations of the day, it it too easy to lose sight of this. But my children have added so much depth to my life, and I always want to appreciate this change as the blessing it truly is.

Happy Mother's Day!

  1. What?! no comments? This sounds like a wonderful book. I guess all the mommies are getting ready for their big day. I love the contrast of the poem, and it so different from most mommy poems.

    Glad you are counting your blessings about being a mommy-me too!
