God, Your momma & Me

Three years. Two kids. One love.

The past few years have flown past me because so many other things were happening during our relationship. We had our honeymoon stage for a short while, soon after we welcomed our first baby into the world, we moved out on our own, we’ve welcomed our second child on earth, and so much more. I would be lying if I said everything has been an easy ride. We have both wronged the other; yelling, slamming doors, and going to bed angry (my least favorite thing)… but in the end, were always on the same team. We fight about things that aren’t important in retrospect. Little things like: why did you have to cut hair tonight?, Why did you just walk past that dirty diaper?, or lack of communication and such. He has never hurt me physically or even come close to breaking my heart. This man, I’m not sure how I was blessed with such a wonderful human. He has his flaws, and Lord knows, I have mine. I think were the perfect balance to each other. He is the calm to my wild, and I truly believe that opposites attract. When I first met Erick, I was newly pregnant and so scared about the future. Together, we have grown to be a secure couple and have a tight knit family. I know that with him, and help from the Lord, we will make it through anything. There have been times when I wished he would change or even myself; but these people are the two people who fell in love just a few years ago. I hope to never negatively change him. I always want him to have his own opinion and keep me level headed and vice versa. I know I can be honest with him, he knows everything about me from the darkness of my pasts to my hopes and dreams for the future. There isn’t anything I can’t talk to him about, whether its random thoughts, or deep emotions. I know three years seems like such a short amount of time, but for what we have accomplished in those three years, it feels like a lifetime. I barely remember life before him, except I was skinner… (ha) He is truly my best friend, other half and father of my children. Everyday spent with him is a day worthwhile. I can honestly say that I love him (and each of my kids) with all my heart, soul and being. I can wait to grow old with him, but I’m excited for all of the in-betweens memories we will create as we age together. We have and will struggle together just as we have and will succeed together. We are a team, partners and companions; I couldn’t imagine anyone else by my side. These past three years have been a test of our relationship, and we have surpassed it with flying colors. We will still have disagreements, but as long as we remain solid, we can achieve anything.


My love is, Never gonna run dry, never gonna come up empty
Now until the day I die, unconditionally
You know I’m always gonna be here for ya
No one’s ever gonna love you more than
God, your mama, and me
God, your mama, and me
God, your mama, and me


4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

-1 Corinthians 13:4-7


Dear Daughters,

You girls are the foundation of my life. You’re the reason I wake up in the morning. Those smiles bring me nothing but joy and those cries make me thrive harder. I can’t picture my life without either of you and hope you ALWAYS know how much you mean to me. You are my heart, soul and all of my being. Without you, I am nothing. I hope nothing but the absolute best for your futures. I hope you know you are going to stumble many times, but you’ll get back up after each and be stronger than you were before. I hope you strive for your dreams and don’t let anyone tell you “you can’t do it”… not even me. I hope you stay true to your opinions and beliefs. I hope you always see the good in everything and try to make the best of even, what may seem, the worst situations. I hope you trust in God and give your lives to him. I hope that you two are always friends and have each others backs. I hope that you will know how important people are, even strangers, for someone loves them too. I hope you are always aware of your surroundings but willing to let people past your wall. I hope you fall in love, and experience all the feels. I hope you find someone who makes you the happiest person on earth, even if you have disagreements. You’ll probably go through at least one heartbreak, but I hope you know when you’ve found the one you’re supposed to be with forever. I hope you get to feel the overpowering love for a child, if thats what you want. I hope you will feel successful, even if you don’t have any money in your bank accounts. Riches aren’t measured in money, but the wealthyness of your heart. I hope you try to change the world for better, but bettering yourselves first . I hope you see beauty in the world that is crumbling down as you continue to grow. But most of all, I hope you never give up on yourselves. I hope you’re always humble, generous, kind and grateful for the life that God has blessed you with, even if its not going your way for a while. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. And it may seem like the end of the world at the time, its just small part of your long beautiful lives.

You are both such wonderful beings and have touched more lives that you know. You have changed mine forever and for that, I am so grateful. I truly am one of the luckiest people in the world. Because I have you guys, I am rich.

I love you more than my words can even begin to describe, and will forever be in your presence.
