I wonder if they will ever know that I stayed up late almost every night for over a decade cleaning, checking locked the doors, covering them with blankets, setting alarms they forgot to set, making sure they are all in a bed and comfortable, getting ready for the next day, fixing that broken toy, moving the elf, wrapping gifts, praying, researching, learning, worrying, reflecting, checking blood sugars, and assessing what i can do better and how I can be better tomorrow.
It’s okay if they never do. I don’t need an award. Knowing I’m doing everything I can physically, emotionally, and spiritually to give them the best life I can is recognition enough.
A parent’s love and devotion is unlike any other that’s for sure. My love and devotion to my wife, their mother, is also deep.
