For my little girl

My dream for you is that you always love yourself first so you can in turn love others.
That you always believe in yourself and your abilities.
That you recognize who your true friends are, who those who really love you are and that you spend your time, love and energy on those only, not wasting one minute on people who don’t matter in your life.
That you are never envious or jealous of your friends, but that instead you rejoice with them when they rejoice, that you cry with them when they cry.
That you love with all of your heart, unconditionally those around you, yet that you understand it’s never ok for someone to use or mistreat you. That you have the strength and wisdom to recognize when someone is toxic to your life and that you are strong enough to let them go and never look back.
That you never judge others or hate them because they are different than you or because you don’t understand them. Instead, I pray you learn from them and that you are compassionate always.
That you never let what a man thinks about you determine your self worth. That you always know you are beautiful, no matter what size clothes you wear, because your beauty is what’s in your heart and your mind.
That you learn from my mistakes as a mother, a woman and a human being and never use those mistakes against me. Instead, grow from them and decide to never make those mistakes yourself.
That you know your father and I ALWAYS have your best interest at heart. That everything we do is to make sure you are safe, that you thrive in life. We may not always get it right, but know our intentions are always pure and good.
I love you, my Gabriella and I hope you never, ever doubt that.
These are my dreams for you, my sweet girl.
I can’t wait to meet you.

    I think its time you be a good girl, and get the hell out of your mommies tummy.

    Our kids always know when we are grounded in love, even when we don’t get it right. All the best from far away New Zealand.

    [i]t you never let what a man thinks about you determine your self worth. That you always know you are beautiful, no matter what size clothes you wear, because your beauty is what’s in your heart and your mind. That you always know this world would be an ugly, lonely place without you, and that what makes you beautiful.[/i]
    This can only be taught to her through example, by you, love.
    This applies to you just as much as it will your daughter. You are beautiful regardless of the size of your pants.
