Dear Jude: joy of my life

Dear Jude, my light and my joy, how you delight me, entertain me, educate me and challenge me to be the very best version of myself. I love how looking up at me for reassurance is all you need to get through booster shots without a single tear. I love how you made it through a terrible cold so bravely, curling up against me at 3am as if all you ever needed was my hug to make it all okay. I love how even when your fever was high, you’d work up a sleepy smile just for me. Your absolute faith in my ability to Be There, and the way that’s all you need to be okay energizes me through sleepless nights of tears and prayers for you. If only you knew, my love, how a corner of my heart lit up the day you were born and grows brighter each day
