My Open Heart

An Open Letter To My Daughter

My Dearest Daughter,

There are many things that I wish to tell you about life and how it has many twists and turns. I wish to tell you that life is a fairytale where your prince will come and soon after happily ever after… However life my darling, is not so simple. There are many challenges that come with life. Some of those will be the happiest moments of your life and you will cherish them forever.. Others will break your heart and for those moments I can hope to be there for you. Life is what you make of it and your decisions are what write your story. The secret to life is to live wholeheartedly not knowing the outcome and remaining humble through sunshine and storms. Because life is not perfect my love. Your life is completely yours and no one else’s. Only you have the power to control what will take shape in your own life and who you will become. No matter how old you become you will always be my baby. I promise to guide you as your mother the best way that I know how, with tenderness, emotion and sometimes tough love. I promise to let you make your own decisions even if I may not always agree. Because I know the value of your choices will become the foundation of the woman that you are truly meant to be. I promise to always be here for you when those choices break your heart and make you cry, even though it will also break mine. Through those heart breaking moments I will remind you that this will only make you stronger and open another door. I will listen to your hopes and dreams for the future and believe in them as you do. I will advise you when asked but also when needed. To say “A mothers job is never over.” is truly an understatement. I will always worry because thats apart of the unwritten contract that you sign when becoming a mom. I will always protect you, even when you have a family of your own. Although you may not understand the reason to my decisions I can only pray that you will once you have a child of your own, just as I do now. I want you to know that I am not perfect. I have made many mistakes in my life. However through the choices that I have made they have lead me right to where I needed to be. My dream for you is to find someone who puts you first and relishes in the moments of happiness through your laughter. My wish for you is to find your best friend in a man who you will spend your life with, someone who thrills, embraces, adores, and loves you exactly the way you are with a kind selfless heart. They say to choose a man to marry with the qualities that you as a mother would want your daughter to marry. Now you can understand why I chose your father. As your mother my dream for you is to be independent, chase your dreams and find your definition of happiness, whatever that maybe. The things that will never change is how much you continue to surprise me with your wit and your understanding curve for this brand new world. I will always love you even when you eventually disappoint me. I will always be here to help you pick up the pieces and smother you with hugs and kisses. I promise to raise you the best way that I can to one day make you proud to say “That’s my mom and I am so lucky she is mine.”

Forever and Always

Mom
