to my angels

to my little angels,

Leaving you for even an hour makes my heart.ache….so this trip has given mama many many tears. I will miss you both desperately. I will think of you both constantly and please forever know that your lives forever changed mine. You both gave meaning to my life that I never knew existed. You make my heart full in ways that I didn’t know was possible.

If something were to happen to me and mommy didn’t make it home… here are things I want you to hold dear to your heart until we meet again,

1. you both can change the world..follow your dreams, your dad and I did…don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.
2. Make Jesus number one in your life, He is the one that will never fail you…cling to Him
3. Mama is trusting that God will wrap his arms around you both and forever protect you… that He will be enough and He will show you in small ways how much I loved you both. You littles were my life.

I hope that people will wake up all hours of the night with you both, that they will hold you tight…that they will be gentle with you and patient…. because that is how you have lived thus far. I pray that you are snuggled much, kissed much, inspired and loved well.I hope you both keep a piece of me with you always :).

Even minutes away from you feels like an eternity. I love you my baby A’s….

love, mama

    This is exactly how I feel everytime I had to leave my little girl to go somewhere. There are always fears that something may happen. The first time my husband and I were forced to go on a vacation was when she's 18 months old. It's only 2 hours away…2 nights but it was the hardest thing and I didn't want to go at all. Once you're away and you know they are taken care of..all will be good. Have a safe trip, everything will be alright 🙂

    Wow: this is so special. I would feel the same way. Its not going to be easy, but I hope once you leave you will have comfort knowing they are well taken care of and that you DESERVE a lovely getaway with your love 🙂 enjoy xoxo

    Your kids will be loved. They will be just fine and believe it or not this type of changes help them become more confident in your love and their parents. I've been leaving my children since they were babies to go on travels with my husband. I would never regret it for we become as closer and happier as a couple and therefore we do better as parents. Enjoy to the MOST!

    Casey, this is so sweet. My mom wrote a letter to me when I was 7 1/2 months old the night before she and my dad took my sister to Hawaii. I have made copies of the handwritten letter to make sure nothing ever happens to it. I will always hold it dear to my heart. It says so much about who she is, what our family was like, and you can see Christ's love pouring through her… Just. Like. You. You inspire me. You are an amazing, loving, selfless, wonderful Christian women who is the best mother to your littles. Should anything ever happen to you, you will never be forgotten… You have truly influenced the lives of so many people, especially your children, and made them better. I love you! I'll be praying for the Lord to send his angels to watch over you.

    omygosh I do this same sort of thing ANYTIME I leave my babes for more than a day. (which I don't do much)
    I panic and I think I should leave them a note just in case…
    enjoy your trip!!!

    I hope you can use your time away as a chance to reconnect with your husband. Time spent away from your sweet babies, will help them to see how much their daddy loves their momma when you return. Your kids are probably enjoying their time away from you and having their own "vacation". And the best part is that they will be FULL of hugs and kisses all ready for you when you return.

    My heart goes out to you until you return.

    this made me cry so much. i have those exact same thoughts whenever i leave my baby (even just for date night!) and if something ever happened to me as i'm sure every mom has thought about. it's amazing how strong a hold those littles can have on you 🙂

    Sweet Sweet Post! I'm CERTAIN that your babies KNOW just how much you love them! I too have these fears as we travel, even together. I think the worst, but God is in control. Our what if's don't change His plan! Praying for safe travels!

    This post was so sweet & really hit close to home. Whenever I leave my daughter Zoey I get that heartache feeling! I don't think it will ever go away. I love how you write – it's always so inspiring.

    Ps. I have linked up with your blog twice now and just realised that I'm suppose to add your button to my blog post when doing so! I feel like such an idiot and I'm so sorry for not correctly linking up!
