Jordan

In six years, Jordan will jump off the school bus and turn her cheek to reach her mom’s waiting pucker.

She’ll anticipate that kiss-

Cartoons before breakfast, her favorite peanut butter sandwich in the bottom of her pink unicorn lunch bag, and that kiss.

One in the morning, one before school, one at bedtime-

And of course all the ones squeezed in between (they’ll cover her face like freckles).

This family, all of them, the whole big bunch-

They are always right there leaning in to your cheek.

Love-

Constant, welcoming, and wonderfully magnified.

The grandmas are like moms, the aunts are like sisters, and the phone calls feel like arms embracing you.

This lucky little girl, she’ll always feel warm;

Winter, Summer, baby blanket or not.
