A Letter to my Kindergartner

A few thoughts to our first baby girl as you begin this new adventure :)  

There are a few things we want you to remember:

Always be yourself. God made you an original, and you're super cute just the way you are!

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you...” ~ Jeremiah 1:5  

Be patient with your baby sister.  She purposefully drives you crazy (and bites you and pulls your hair)...but she loves you and wants to be just like you! ;)

Keep your free, creative, happy spirit.  You are our ray of sunshine, that's for sure.  (And you totally appreciate mommy's goofiness silly side!)

Look for great adventures, and discover new things...

Be sure to appreciate the little things in life...

Don’t be afraid to take a stand for yourself and what you believe in.  

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” ~ Psalm 27:1

Keep your head up and don’t miss the sunshine because you were looking down.

You are never alone (even though you probably want to be sometimes).  

"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand." ~ Isaiah 41:10

You have already added so much to our lives.  So many hugs and kisses...and dinosaur toys.  So much love and affection...and pink!  We are so blessed and thankful that God chose us to be your parents. 

“Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them.  And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, ‘Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.’” 
~ Mark 9:36-37

You are beautiful and smart and so much fun.  We love you so much and hope you have a great year! :) 
Mommy & Daddy

Note: I read this letter to my girl with so much emotion and love, and this was her response: “Why don’t you send that to my phone?” 
ummm...because you’re five, you don’t have a phone.  
“Well, is breakfast ready?” 
 {sigh...from the mouths of babes...}
