It Won't Be Like This For Long

August 14th, 2014 marked 6 years exactly that I have been blessed with a presence that has truly blessed my life. God graced me with the gift of motherhood at 03:57 PM when I gave birth to the most precious 8 pound, 9 ounce, 21 inches long baby girl. From the very second I heard her cry as she entered the world, I knew, right there in Room 218 of Mercy Medical Center of Roseburg that my heart was now fully complete, so full of love.

Being her mother has taught me so much and I never knew I could love someone or something more than I love her. She has tugged at my heart strings, made me cry and laugh with so much joy and has pushed my buttons so many times- but even with that, it has all been worth everything I have.

Nothing could ever compare to the grace, beauty, love, wisdom, joy, happiness and courage she has given me and she will always be my reason to breathe, live and see the amazing tomorrow's. Some days its as if I need her more than she needs me and she is teaching me more than I am teaching her. She is the sunshine of my life and I cannot even express into words how tremendously blessed I am to be able to call her my daughter.

Malia Noela, I believe we all make our own destiny and I didn't know it til you came into my life that I was destined to be your Mama. You make my life so meaningful and you are my whole entire reason for being. I love you so very, very much and I hope every single wish you make comes true. Happy happy birthday, my darling. You will never know how much Mommy cares for you and always remember that when you dream, dream BIG. <3

"It Won't Be Like This For Long"
Songwriter(s): Ashley Glenn Gorley & Darius C. Rucker
He didn't have to wake up, he'd been up all night
Lying there in bed and listening to his newborn baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee, he splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says it's gonna be okay

It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughing at the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by, so baby just hold on
It won't be like this for long

Four years later 'bout 4:30, she's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at pre-school she's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him, he says, "What can I do?"
She says, "Now don't you worry, this'll only last a week or two"

It won't be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off and she won't even know you're gone
This phase is gonna fly by if you can just hold on
It won't be like this for long

Someday soon she'll be a teenager and at times he'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the aisle and raise her veil
But right now she's up and crying and the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her goodnight and she says her prayers

He lays down there beside her till her eyes are finally closed
And just watching her it breaks his heart 'cause he already knows

It won't be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be all grown up and gone
And this phase is gonna fly by, so he's trying to hold on
'Cause it won't be like this for long
It won't be like this for long
