In my arms, I snuggled you,
In my arms, I breastfed you,
In my arms, I cuddled you,
In my arms, I thanked the Lord,
For a blessing has been born.
I gave you unconditional love to last,
I gave you guidance on your path,
I gave you my time, all that I had,
I gave you smiles when you were sad,
For a joy you had become, my child.
I released you to understand freedom,
I released you to grow in life’s education,
I released you to pursue your dreams,
I released you to seek your meaning of love,
For a proud parent, I’d become, my young adult.
As you grew in height, I grew in experience,
As you grew in friends, I grew in trust,
As you grew in thoughts, I grew in acceptance,
As you grew into me, I grew into my parent,
For all the gifts shared, I am thankful!
Each experience in the journey of living adds an essential contribution to being creative in life. As days and even years pass, time has been filled and developed with opportunities, to imagine, and express an original thought that can grow in the cycle of sharing. It’s astounding how creative some of the natural things are in life. Lately, I have had the opportunity to observe and reflect on the beginning of many of my creative adventures. In my opinion, however viewed, my family has aided to the motivation of becoming the person I am. Through love, laughter and tears, in my view, I have been one of those that have been fortunate to have a supportive family that strives to provide inspiration, encouragement, and joy. They had and continue to guide me to follow my dreams, aided me with strength when I have fallen, and defended me to grow into the vision I believe. Those gifts they shared came with unlimited rewards. It was only the matter of taking responsibility, nurturing the gifts, and allowing them to be shared through me to others. My creative inspiration comes from being grateful for truth, love, devotion and acceptance to grow from the heart.
