A Message to my 5-Year-Old Daughter on Her Birthday

Five. It's been five years since you screamed your way out of the womb. Five years since you cast a magical spell over my very being. Five years since my heart felt connected to another human in a way that is indescribable.

Who you are today simply takes my breath away. You are caring, loving, concerned, nosy, curious, polite, stubborn, excited, snuggly, kissable and just a good human being. I am not sure how you have become who you are today, but it amazes me!

Your face is light and your voice is the sweetest sound.

When I tell someone about my daughter, the pride I feel is so great, it is overwhelming. You are my daughter...this wonderful human being is my daughter, my family, my life. I am so proud of you today, proud of who you are and who you are becoming.

Five. Five incredible years of ups and downs and living life. Five years of pure love.
