My Sweet Ayleen,
I am so grateful that God chose me to be your mommy! Thank you for the lessons, laughter, and reminders of what’s important in life. You make me want to be better and do better, not only as a mother but as a sister, daughter, and friend.
You are sweet and spunky, fearless and independent, silly and curious, loud and expressive, smart and stunningly beautiful.
You LOVE water. You were a total beach babe and would cry every time we left the beach or the pool. You LOVE music! You dance and hum anytime you hear music and love when your Uncle Meshack sings to you
Changing your clothes, or diapers for that matter, is like wrestling with a giant. You are SO not a fan of being still
I pray that you always know that you are a daughter of God, know that He loves you and has great things in store for you, I pray that you always remember the love and strength of your family, that you are smart, beautiful, and courageous, and that you will never ever be alone.
I promise to always be there for you, to help guide you, pray for you, and love you unconditionally. I may disappoint you, I may not be your “friend”, I will for sure embarrass you, but know that I love you more than you can ever imagine. I hope when you reread this letter, years down the road, you will smile, and know how special you are to Daddy and I, and how much we LOVE you!
Happy birthday sweetheart!
