I Chose You

(Here's a blast from the past - five years ago now, but just as true today.)

This is for every woman who ever chose a child over other options.

I could have had more time,
more house,
more room.
I chose you.


I could have had more money,
more things,
dinners out…
I chose you.


More me,
More sleep,
more freedom;
I chose you.


Less mess,
less cooking,
less laundry;
I chose you.


Less school,
less PBS,
less PBJ;
I chose you.


Because of you,
I have MORE.
More love,
more memories,
more smiles,
more delight,
more joy.

Where would I be without you?
