We all have wishes in life. I have too many to count.
Today, I wish that I could always remember just how cute and cuddly Tessa is right now.
I wish she would stay this way forever, but I know she won’t. So I have to remember.
I wish I could remember every detail.
I wish I would not forget.
I remember this feeling with all my kids. The panic to remember. The longing to bottle them up, and never let them grow.
I would tell myself, “I won’t forget.”
There are details that I can’t bring to the surface.
I wish, I could.
I wish that my memories would stay locked inside.
I hope someday I can have those memories back.
