Prayer for a Baby Boy

Dedicated to C.M.G. and his mama, whom I love; and to my son You, wrapped in that blanket so sweet with those tendrils of hair curling this way and that.

Superhero Sweet Dreams: A Mother’s Lullaby to her Son

You snuggle close, wrapping one arm behind my back, the other resting gently on my hand. I bask in the warmth of your freshly bathed form, wrapped in your favorite fleece. My eyes drink in every last inch of your face; your to-die-for-long lashes, that lock of strawberry blonde hair that refuses to stay brushed… Continue reading Superhero Sweet Dreams: A Mother’s Lullaby to her Son
