To the moon and back

Dear Luke and Ellie, 

The other night as I tucked you into bed Luke we said what we always say at bedtime, "I love you to the moon and back. And around again." and then you said what you always say, "yup, that's how we say it, forever, right mama?" "Right Luke, forever." And then you brushed the back of your hand across my check and you said, "even when you're in heaven I will love you mom. Forever." 

You are both too young to be thinking about me in heaven. And then it makes me think that life is never certain and you never know and I hope to God that you don't have to think about any of that until you are really old and saddled with your own grandchildren. 

To the moon back. Forever.
