Dear Daughter

I could hold you forever.

In fact, for the majority of these first four weeks of your life, I have hardly put you down.

You’ve blown my heart into a million pieces and reassembled it into a thing of beauty, much larger than before, and overflowing with love, patience, and joy.

Your cries and your tiny tears break my heart.

Your smiles are events I’ll never forget.

When you stretch after waking, or grasp my fingers, I feel time stops.

What a privilege to know you.
What a journey I get to walk with you, raising and guiding and loving you.

You’ve changed my world and made me a mother.

I will always love and respect you.

Thank you…You’ve made me a better person and it’s only been 27 days.

I love you.
