Dear Ellery Jane,
When I look back on this year for you,
when I see the changes you’ve had to endure,
I am simply amazed by you my precious child.
There was online school thrown together, then a move to the farm.
After a summer of adjusting to the rural world, you were thrust into a new school, a place you’d never been in before, with people you didn’t know wearing masks.
And you showed us all.
You made new friends.
You talked openly about the hard parts.
You reminded us that living in joy doesn’t always mean life’s easy.
Thank you for your honesty, for teaching me to live in truth.
Thank you for your beautiful words each morning and night.
Thank you my wild eyed, inquisitive, imaginative child for making our lives so beautiful.
I love you more then words can say.
Happiest of birthday’s.
Your one and only Momma
PS- I think we can dance to this one don’t you?
