Then She Was 5
I don`t know where to begin. I guess I will start by saying Thank You! Five years ago looking at three positive pregnancy tests, I felt the most afraid I had ever been in my life. There was never a question of whether or not I wanted you, but more a question of if I was ready. You see being a mom is a BIG deal. At that moment I was no longer responsible for just myself but your wellbeing inside the womb and outside once you finally arrived.
My biggest fear was messing up. I questioned my ability to raise a person who would be kind, warm, loving, honest and strong in her faith. I wondered if I would be able to teach you how to follow your dreams, stay true to yourself and maintain self respect. This journey in motherhood hasn’t been easy at all but the love that you have given me unconditionally has made it more than worth it!
I thank you for hanging in here with me. I thank you for knowing me better than anyone else. I thank you for being so loving to your brother even when he’s not so nice. I thank you for wanting to be big helper around the house. I thank you for all the hugs and kisses.
Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for the times you were brave and I wasn’t. Most importantly thank you for just being you. You, little girl, are one of the truest loves of my life. You make me a better person. A more driven person.
You are smart, crazy beautiful and compassionate to a fault. I am so blessed to be your mommy. Thank you for 5 years of motherhood blissfulness. We’re going to rock year 6 out like no other mother-daughter duo on this planet.
