Letter to my daughter

Sunday, February 17, 2013
As I sit here this evening, I am overwhelmed with admiration and joy. Each day my daughter grows and develops brings us one day closer to her arrival. It brings tears of happiness to my eyes knowing that this little being was created with thought, good intentions, and by two people that will having nothing less than an unconditional admiration and concern for her. If I could write a "pre-letter" to my daughter I think it would look something like this:

My sweet baby,

I can't wait to see your smile. I can't wait to hold your little hands, and kiss your little cheeks. I want to tell you how  grateful I am for the change you sparked in me. My love for life has multiplied and I owe that to you. My heart, my ambitions, and my attitude are amplified for the better. There are a few things I want you to know right off the bat; You have the best daddy this world has to offer. No matter what happens in your life, you will always have a # 1 fan, a protector, and someone you can call your hero. Your daddy and I will never be perfect, and there aren't many things that we can guarantee. ONE thing I can guarantee, one promise I will never break is that we can supply you with a lifetime of love. We will always do our best to make sure the foundation of your morals are always in good standing. I don't want you to ever worry about falling, because I will always be there to catch you. So don't be fearful of mistakes baby, life is full of them and they are never ending. Be assured in yourself, be strong. Keep your faith, because a lot of times we lose our way. Beauty is a state of mind, not a state of body. Cook, decorate, clean, and organize because you love to, not because someone tells you you’re meant to. Music makes everything better. LAUGH ! always, laugh. Laugh at yourself, laugh when something is REALLY funny. Laughter is good for the soul, never forget that. Show the world your beautiful smile, and never allow anything to taint that. Remember that making a change in this world, always starts with yourself, so always do the right thing, even when no one is looking. Integrity is the only credibility you should never want to lose. Your gut instinct will never steer you in the wrong direction. If it doesn't feel right in the pit of your stomach, chances are it isn't ! Be patient with your father & I, as we will be patient with you. You aren't the only one that is new to this ;) We are on your side; especially on the days when it doesn't feel like it. EXPRESS yourself, have opinions, share those opinions. Daddy and I will never discipline you for speaking your beautiful mind, with appropriate words and appropriate gestures.I could go on and write a million more words, but I think i'll save the rest for this journey, your life.
