Before we celebrate the big day, can I gush about you for a moment?

You make your momma so incredibly proud.

You are light and love and all things good in this world.

You touch people with your generous spirit and your smile is as wide as a rainbow.

Most importantly your presence in our lives is a reminder that this life is a joy to live.

As you walk your way through your tenth year there are a few things I want you to remember.

You will accomplish great things.

You will move mountains and make this world a better place.

I know this as it was embedded on my heart the moment the nurse placed your head on my chest on January 12, 2007.

Don’t give anyone the power to place doubts in your head about your abilities.

Follow the prompts of the quiet voice inside your heart. God is working in you.

Finally, don’t ever forget how loved you are. My love for you is immeasurable.

Enjoy this year and all the blessings it will bring.

Happy birthday my darling girl.

I thank God for choosing me to be your Momma.

I love you,

Momma

PS- This, this my love is what I want you to remember. Play it often and soak in the words- your birthday song.
