No joke I started this love letter to my daughter after I did the love letter to my parents which was my first blog I wrote. Hehe..
This had absolutely nothing to do with procrastination, but everything to do with finding the right words through my actions. I didn’t want to write a quick “I love you” and throw in some memories and be done with it type of blog. If I didn’t do that with my parents love letter why would I do it to my daughters!
I want this letter to be felt by my daughter when she grows up and reads it. I want her to know how much she means to me and not by words I can jot down on a blog. So here you go my Princess this love letter is for you!
My beautiful little girl,
Your Daddy and I love you so much! When we first found out we were pregnant with you it was hard for us to be excited. You see my baby girl we had pregnancies before you and unfortunately they were miscarried. Yet, for some reason we sorta felt and believed God told us this was it, you were going to be our greatest gift.
Your Daddy was so sweet he wouldn’t let me do a thing. He cooked, cleaned, washed the clothes, yard work, and everything else you can think of. I remember he would even brush my hair because of how long it was; he thought me brushing to long would put stress on you. He is such a gentleman. Your very blessed to have him as your Daddy. Just so you know he still does all those things for Mommy and carries you along with him! He loves you so very much!
Time kept going on and you kept growing. I would hear your heartbeat and it was the most wonderful sound I’d ever heard. Then it came time to find out your gender and the doctor told us you were our Princess.
I can’t lie I cried! Not because I wasn’t happy; but because I was afraid of what you would go through. As a woman I had been through a lot; and for many years it changed me and took me away from the woman I should have been. I struggled to trust men, and people in general because of all the heartbreaks I’d gone through. I know it’s the reason why God didn’t put you in my life till the timing was right.
I can’t believe that now your about to be one year old! I’m already planning your pastel rainbow & hot air balloon tea party. I want you to know that no matter what happens in life always be strong, be loving, show forgiveness, and always know who God is in your life. Have patience and wait for the things you want most. Don’t chase it! Don’t run after it! If God wants you to have it, He will give it to you!
I am doing the best I can to make sure you grow to be all that God has created you to be. His plans are already set for you, and even if you hit bumps along the way just know the outcome is already written! Trust God, Love God, and Know God! Never ever let anyone steer you away from Him. Without God we are nothing but a grain of sand.
Your Daddy and I will always do everything we can to make you succeed in life. I know that in the future we may have disagreements or disappointments; but I hope that you will always know that as your Parents we’ll forever have your best interest at heart. You mean the world to us Princess. Your an answered prayer that took years for us to be prepared for, but God is never late and always knows exactly what he’s doing.
Right now at this moment I’m sitting on the couch with you; and watching you play with your tea pot set. I’m still in awe that your here with me. I love being your Mommy and watching you grow. These moments I’ll forever cherish and remember this is the time my rainbow was shown!
My precious little one you’ve made my life filled with so much happiness! You hold my heart in your hands. In just a few moments you went from sitting with me and playing on the couch to rubbing your tired little eyes and ready for a nap. Soon you’ll go from my arms to walking around the house. I look forward to seeing you grow into a woman. I don’t know what God has planned for you, but I do know it’s going to be something wonderfully beautiful!
Mommy Loves You!! There is nothing in the world that could measure my love for you!
I hope y’all have enjoyed my Love Letter to my Princess, and hope this day finds you Happy, healthy, creative, and full of life! Whatever you do never aim to be a replica of another, because you’re too beautiful to be replaced! My daughter and I just now were given a flower from my husband for National Women’s Day and what a perfect time for this blog to be finished!
Here’s to all the women in this world past, present, and future; You’re loved & appreciated. Keep on striving to be all you’re meant to be and more. There should be no competition with each other. We all should do our best to uplift and encourage one another. If other women tell you that there are “teams, or groups”, don’t listen to them because those people will be the first ones to bring you down. There should never be a reason that we shouldn’t be there for one another. If one bad apple ruined a bunch, it must have been because the leader of that pack rot from the inside out! We’re all in this together and building friendships is way better than burning bridges. If we never learn how to truly love, we’ll never be able to teach true love to our children.
Have a blessed International Woman’s Day, and don’t forget to be a blessing to every woman you see today! I challenge you ladies to meet a new friend and sow love into all your friendships!
With Love & Encouragement Always,
