You turned 13 years old this week. Wow! As I sit here to write this letter there is so much I want to say to you, yet I know only a fraction will be said. First, I want you to know I am continually in awe of you and the young woman you are becoming. You are strong and grounded which are two qualities I admire in you. You know who you are and aren't afraid to just be you. My prayer for you is that you will not falter from your path, you will continue to be who you are and enjoy your life.
Second, you are a funny little thing. You make me laugh even when I don't feel like it. You are a breath of fresh air when my world gets stale! Never stop smiling - your smile and laughter is infectious! It is a necessary part of my life.
Third, I just think you are awesome. Just Sayin...Enough said.
This was you and me 13 years ago on Mother's Day - you were two days old.
I am so in love with you. You stole my heart away the day you were born and I don't ever want it back. I am so very blessed to be your mother.
With all my love,
