This year I started writing wishes to each of my children on their birthday. One day – maybe when they turn 18 or 21 or possibly for some special event like graduation or a wedding – I hope I’ll be able to put them all together in a book for them as a gift.
For you I wish…
i. that when you need it to be, your voice will be strong and not waver.
ii. that when other’s words are too strong &make you waver, you will not let it sink your soul.
iii. that when your soul is shaken, you will know where to turn.
iv. that when you turn there, you will find comfort.
v. that if you don’t find comfort, you will not become bitter.
vi. that if bitterness finds you, you will seek out the bittersweet instead.
vii. and that if all else fails, you will know that you are loved no matter what.
Happy birthday, sweet girl!
I love you so.
