An Open Letter to my dear girl.

Hello my Sweetest Allie Jade,

You don't know it yet, but i'm your crazy mom. I'm so excited for you to be here, you were prayed for a lot by your Dad and I.

Before you decided to make your way in the womb, my life was in a weird place. My career was not in the place I had envisioned and we had just moved to a place that I was sure I wouldn't make home. I had major soul searching to do to figure it all out.

Then there was you. Since you've been growing, I have done more praying and thinking than ever. I have so many things I want to teach and share with you. You made me feel more at home than anything. My perspective changed dramatically and all the silly things I thought before that were so important, no longer mattered. I suddenly had something very tangible to look forward to and you gave me more purpose than I could have imagined.

Thank you for that.

So I do have a few things I want you to know....

I want you to know that nothing in life is fair, sorry darling girl, there will be times you'll want to beat people in the face because they won't work as hard as you, but things will come easier to them.
There will be times you see things on the news that will scare you. There will be times where I can't explain to you why people do things they do. There will be lots of people in your life to help guide you. You will have fabulous teachers who will teach you all kinds of things, and help mold your mind. You will have lots of friends to share wonderful times and create lasting memories with.

You will grow up with people that will love you unconditionally.

If you are ever in doubt remember these things:

  • Praying to God will give you more peace of mind than anything else. 
  • People are more good than bad, there's a lot of love in this world, I know that for sure. 
  • Miracles happen everyday. 
  • Never stop asking why. 
  • Think for yourself, you'll get more out of it than if I tell you. 
  • Find a way to be happy, sometimes you have to create your own sunshine. 
  • The value of a memory is worth more than gold. 
  • Always treat someone who can do nothing for you with kindness. 
  • Always, always take a stand, even if you're standing by yourself. Your ideas matter.  
  • Work hard, this will always pay off, I promise. 
  • Books are wonderful, they can take you places. 
  • Money is not the key to happiness. 
  • Believe in yourself, there will be people that will tell you can't do something. Prove it to yourself you can. 
  • Last but not least, have fun and know that life is full of amazing things you can do, see and feel. 
I could go on and on forever, but I am sure you'll teach me way more than I will teach you. 

I'll love you forever.

I'm so glad you're finally here.
