For Tricia

This is in tribute to the most amazing person Tricia,, Tricia gave birth to baby Gwyneth at 24 weeks while being seriously ill herself. Their story, as told by Nate, Tricias husband has really inspired me!
I wish for Tricia
1. That first slobbery kiss in the morning and that special grin when your child wakes up and sees you, or you come home and they see you.
2. For Gwyneth to come home from school, clutching a handmade card and a bunch of crushed, dead flowers- you will think it is the best present you ever recieved.
3. To find your child applying your lipstick to the dog!
4. To find your child drawing beautiful pictures - all over the wall.
5. To spend 3 hours in Trauma department after your child has put a bead/ball etc up her nose!
6. To spend 4 hours in Trauma after your child has pulled off the cast that was only applied 3 days ago!
7. To go to many many Christmas/Easter/spring plays and see all the gorgeous kids acting and the joy and delight on their faces.
There are many many more but far too many too mention. Nobody told me when I first embarked on this journey called motherhood that it would be the hardest, most frustrating job that I would ever do. That I would be driven to tears and anger many more times than I could have thought possible. But also that it would be the most amazing, joyfilled journey, that I would experience so many wonderful experiences and make so many good friends. The good definitely outweighs the bad, and I wouldnt change it for the world. So, to Tricia, I pray you, baby Gwyneth and dad Nate, that you get to experience all this and more!
