We love so many of the same things and that is what connects us. You have my sense of humor and my dark sarcasm. But you also have sass and attitude, even at 8 years old...which honestly frightens me because I know one day you'll be a teenager and it won't be as cute anymore.
You tell me all the time that I will always be your best friend and I pray that that statement always stays true. You are stunning to look at, with your curly blonde hair and sparkly green eyes....but you are also sensitive, thoughtful and so bright, so witty. Your self confidence blows me away and, to be honest, there are times when I'm envious and wish I could have even just 1/4 of your confidence and belief in myself.
My hope for you is that you always strive to reach your dreams and that you always believe in yourself.
Happy 8th birthday to both of you!! I love you both with all my heart and soul!! And I am blessed to be your mother!
