Dear Baby Girl,
As you stepped foot on that school bus this morning your whole life flashed before my eyes. You are about to embark on a journey that most refer to as, "the time of your life". The High School years! I would have to disagree with them. The time of MY life hadn't started until the first time I heard your heartbeat. The first time I felt you move inside of me. The first time I held you in my arms. The first time someone called me mommy. I have thoroughly enjoyed every milestone of your life, and it is all flying by way too fast!
If I had three wishes, this is what I would wish for...
~I wish you much strength! Strength to see each day through with all of it's hurdles. Strength to stand up for yourself if needed. Strength to be yourself and to love that self. Strength to succeed in all you do. Strength to see the good in people or the good that people long to see. I wish you strength!
~I wish you a heart of steel! From one girl to another, high school is when most girls feel their first real heart break. I wish that when you give your heart to someone, they are just as happy and excited to nourish it as I was the first time I heard it. I wish your heart as strong as steel staying whole , happy, and unbroken.
~I wish you all the happiness in the world! I hope as your mom I have done my job teaching you that happiness comes from within. I wish you find happiness in each day and your journey is full of smiles and laughter.
I hope you enjoy your first day in high school! I can't wait to hear all about it! Reach for the stars, fight like a girl, and lets do this thing!!
I love you with all of my heart,
