Leaders & Daughters - To My Daughter

To My Fierce Girl

 

Dear Gracie,

Where to start!? You are magnificent. You are smart. You are silly and funny! You are compassionate. You are loving. You are outrageously curious! You are peaceful. You are a ball of energy too! You are courageous. You inspire me daily. I can only pray that you continue to brighten the world with your incredible light.

The universe was blessed the day you came into the world, and my life has never been the same since then. You have so much to offer this world, I’ve seen it in your young, yet wise, 6 years on earth. I can’t wait to see where all your incredible traits and skills will take you as you make your way through life.

Remember always you are loved, and to love back. Family is everything, faith is too. We are a little team, you and I, and we’re conquering things together – I’m forever grateful to travel this life with you. I want you to know how amazing you are, know that you have NO limits, know you will always be adored, loved, supported and taken care of. Take chances, pursue your passions, be kind, nurture your friendships, educate yourself and stay close to your family.

I will support all of these things, and always be there waiting for you when you need a snuggle. I adore you, you make life even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. You are so loved, thank you for being Amazing Grace – you have so much to do!! Go get em!

I love you baby,
Mommy
