You Give Us Purpose
Dedicated to our children, Luca John & Aviana Rae.
I never realized how different our lives would become because of you. We get to experience life in a whole new way, with each emotion having a different meaning than it did before. You each make life more exciting, scary, and beautiful just by being in it. The meaning of unconditional love finally makes sense. We live our lives day in and day out for you and would not want it any other way!
You give us purpose.
As we watch you two play and just be, happiness fills our hearts. There are no worries, no uncertainties, no fears. Our hearts become full. Our world feels complete. You show us the pure joy of life and how simple it can be to feel fulfilled.
We love how kisses make you feel happy, how hugs make you feel loved, and how understanding your behaviors make you feel accepted. You remind us that these daily, simple acts are the most beneficial to your well-being, to all of our well-being. I hope you keep reminding us of that. Your unconditional love keeps us humbled, allows us to forgive ourselves for the bad days, and makes us feel like the luckiest parents in the world every day.
Luca and Aviana, you fill our hearts with so much love, appreciation, and gratitude. We are over-joyed and in awe that you are ours. We have a new-found excitement for a life we never knew existed, we will never take that for granted.
