Right now you are only four, but I am already seeing glimpses of the adult you could become. I hope the strengths I see in you continue to grow and that you learn from your weaknesses so that someday you can make a difference in this world. If anyone can make a difference, I know it’s you my dear daughter.
You are brave. Even when you are afraid I see you willing to try. That willingness to go beyond your fear will take you far in life.
You have a mind of your own and you aren’t afraid to tell it like it is. At times this particular trait is incredibly frustrating. Your independent and stubborn nature is going to be an asset when you are older. You will move mountains and no one will stand in your way.
You are beautiful. I hear it from family and strangers alike how beautiful you are. Please do not let it go to your head. I truly believe and live by the wisdom that the way you treat others is more important than how you look. Let your outside be as beautiful as your inside.
I see you watching me. I know I am your most viewed example of what a woman should be. I want you to know I am not perfect, but I will always own up to my mistakes and correct them. I want you to know that I will do my best to show you what it means to love, be kind, be strong, and to do what is right.
I know that you are not me. You are your own person and I value you and accept you for who you are, now and always.
Stay brave, independent, beautiful, and always own up to your mistakes. Know that no matter how far you go in life your family will always be here, and that we will always love you.
