Dear Rearview Mirror,
I just want to say thank you. I feel blessed to have you in my life.
You see, you give me views that I’ll always remember.
You and I will share some of the most precious memories, photographed in my mind and in my heart. I never knew how much meaning you held in my life until today. As I waited in line to drop my daughter off at preschool, it was you I looked into, and caught view of a picture-perfect moment. As I glanced back into you, there I saw them.
My daughter and son holding hands.
No prompting, just the love of my baby girl and my baby boy, being in the moment, full of love for one another.
It got me thinking about when my wife and I brought our then days-old baby girl home for the first time. As I drove barely the speed limit home, I looked into you as that little girl’s face reflected into the back seat mirror and back at me. She was sleeping cozy. A memory that will forever live in my heart.
Then there was that time I looked into you and watched a new mother sit beside her crying baby girl to help calm her, and speak to her softly.
Then, Rearview Mirror, you were there to see our little family grow to a family of four.
Next, I looked into you and a little baby boy appeared. Over time, I know I’ll see a lot through you.
