Exist Loudly

About a Boy

Riley,
Tonight, I texted you that I was thinking of you & that I loved you.
You texted me back that you loved me too and that you had a boyfriend.
My heart filled for you because young love is sweet and innocent, even at 11 years old.
My heart ached for you because you are growing up. I keep my favorite picture of you as a baby in my wallet. You’re wearing a GAP onesie that I bought you and your laugh is as big as the spark that shines in your eyes.
I want nothing more than everything you and your sister Taylor deserve. You two deserve a world of love, laughter, hope, and smiles. I hope I can give you some of that.
Love,
Shelia
