5 years ago today...
I cannot believe that it has been 5 years since you were born. I know in the blink of an eye I will be writing: I can't believe it's been 25 years since you were born.
Thank you for making me a mother. You introduced me to this world with such kindness and gentleness. You are so full of love. You share it and take it with open arms. You are a wonderful example to me of unconditional love. I admire your ease at friendship and your openness to the world and learning.
I am so full of joy when I watch you try, fail and succeed. I love watching you discover, explore and use your imagination. It brings me such pleasure to listen to you sing and watch you dance, all with such grace and freedom.
You take such good care of your little sister. I am so proud of you when you comfort her and care for her, and teach her something new. I am really looking forward to watching you blossom into a beautiful bouquet of a human being. Thank you for putting up with your very-flawed mother, and forgiving me all my mistakes. I love you very much.
