Dear Daughter

Years ago, you made your entrance as my tiny princess sitting Indian style.  I prayed I would have a baby girl to love.  I was granted my wish.  It nearly killed me I could not hold you immediately upon seeing your little face but your dad held you near to me so I could gaze upon you (making sure you were swaddled and safe).  As soon as the doctors allowed me to cradle you, into my arms you went.  I can’t believe how fast the years have passed since that first meeting.  I loved you before you were born and knew that I was given a gift straight from heaven.  While it is difficult not being with you to celebrate your birthday (today), please know I am thinking about and loving you right where you are. When we are together, I am astounded that I must glance upwards to look into your eyes.  I see a tall, hard-working, intelligent, young woman who has dreams and goes after them.  You will achieve your goals because you are tenacious (even when life is rough).  You are beautiful inside and out and I am proud to call you my daughter.  No one could ever replace you!  I love you up to heaven and back.  Happy birthday, honey!

    From the Devil.

  2. I wish every mom could do the same tribute. It’s very beautiful as it was written BY the heart :)… Happy Birthday to your daughter 🙂

  3. Dear Pam – What a gift indeed. Wishing her a happy birthday and a year filled with discovery and lots of love and may she keep good health too. I wish I could hug you too….and you know why.
    Your post and the song pulled at my heartstrings…

  4. Yes, she is beautiful :-). I remember those days. . .if she wants to be a firefighter, she still can! She’ll rock the uniform! I think “chef” is more her speed now, though. I hope we hear from her too. I miss her so much. Love you daughter!! xoxoxoxo
