One Thousand Kisses

For My Daughter:

When I first touched your cheek three years ago today, it was so cold that I forgot to kiss your sweet little face.  I have felt guilty about it ever since.

Today, in your honor and in your memory, know that I am covering your younger brother and younger sister in one thousand kisses.  I hope, somehow, that you feel some of that love and affection. Thank you for showing me–and reminding me, every day, in your absence–how beautiful it is to be a mom.  I love you.
