This was sent to me and I just teared up I thought it was the greatest. if you like it let me know and if you have already read it tell me what you thought.
Love 2 All

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

*Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

*Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

*Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck and I will buy you one if he comes by.

*Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

*Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

*Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

*Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I
love you.

*Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

*Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

*Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

*Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

*I will think about the mothers And fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and  fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

*And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask Him for nothing, except one more day............

Thank you. 

Thank you for posting this poem for all of us to see. On Sept. 8th I will be spending the day looking at my son Ethan's baby book instead of putting up streamers and getting his birthday cake ready. I will be going out to his memorial tree and brushing my fingers over the leaves instead of touching his cheek while he sleeps for his nap. I will be looking at the urn that holds his ashes instead of watching him unwrap his birthday presents, his smile so big and broad. I want to thank you for posting this poem because it does show all mothers out there to take the extra moment, even when they are busy, to be with their little ones. You never know how long they will be with you and you honestly should cherish each and every moment with them, no matter how busy you are. You have brought to light the one wish I would have if I ever had the chance to have it granted. I would wish for my baby boy back, even if only for 1 day.
