How time flys – from the moment you entered my life, the world that I knew was rocked. I had been blessed with the most beautiful rose, hands so small and eyes so big. Never did I think I could love so much, never did I believe this tiny little person would change my ways, my heart and my path. From first words to first grade, everything you have done and will do is extraordinarily out of this universe special.
My life will forever be altered and I will be eternally grateful. Although I knew from the beginning I would never be able to give you the world (as much as I want to) and I could never promise perfection, today I give you whats in my heart.
As we celebrate your TENTH birthday, I make to you the same promises that I made ten years ago…
To always be there, no matter how trivial, nothing is too small;
To be your biggest cheerleader in all that you dream of, work toward and accomplish, and a shoulder for the times you may fall short only to tell you to shake it off and keep trying.
To allow you space to make friends, lose friends and be a best friend;
To never lose faith in who you are or what you can do;
To listen, discuss, debate, agree and disagree (which I’m sure will happen A LOT) with you;
To be your mom (you may not like it sometimes, but one day you will understand – I promise);
To step back and watch you grow up;
To let go a little bit at a time (with boundaries of course) no matter how difficult; and
To love you (THIS MUCH infinity) unconditionally forever and always…
Happy 10th Birthday Sweet Pea, I love you!
