Dearest Daughter...


It is at times like this that I think of you, when it is dark and I know that you are far away. If you should ever doubt that you are in my heart, don't. In so many ways, I look at you and marvel about the woman that you have become. I marvel that I was able to be a part of your journey. I know that I have not been a perfect mother, there are many things that I look back on and would readily change, but I have done my best and you are so much more amazing that I could have ever dreamed.

I remember when you were born with a shock of black hair. I was dumbfounded that I had created such a beautiful being. You laughter brought me so much joy. Watching you grow, run, play continued to be incredible.

Even during those hard years, I knew that you would come out better on the other side (okay, to be honest, I hoped that you would come out better on the other side) and watching you struggle to find your identity was painful and hurt my heart. I wanted to be able to sweep you away and fix your pain.

Sweetest girl, now I have watched you grow into an adult, an amazingly smart and beautiful woman. One who brings so much to the table, one who is often under appreciated. You are far away from me in mileage but always close in my heart.

To say that I love you doesn't even come close to my feelings for you. You come from my heart and my soul. No words will ever be enough to tell you how proud of you I am and how much I love you!

With love,
