This has come sooner that I had anticipated. Mixed emotions I do say! Part of me would love to have you remain my baby forever and the other gets really excited about the woman you are becoming.
You are a beautiful flower to watch, blossoming in your thinking and understanding of your world and those around you. You challenge us as parents to be more and better. You encourage us to be better citizens and deepen our love in the things that set us on fire.
You are amazing Bubu. I am not only saying so because I am your mom, those who take time to know you, will attest to that.
I pray that you never lose your passion, strength and conviction for the things you love and believe in. That element of your personality, is a gift from God to you and the world, share it as often as you can.
As you continue to tower over us, I want you to know that there is no limit to what you set your mind to accomplish.
Enjoy being a teenager, it’s a unique era. I will try not to be anxious, not sure I have any anxiety left. Laugh more, it will keep your heart lighter and the sparkle in your eyes brighter. Take lots and lots of photos; selfies, food, travels, friends, and all, you will treasure them all.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, you will learn from them. Remember you can never drink too much water.
Above all, always know that He has you inscribed in the palms of His hands.
Happy birthday sweetie.
Enjoy the cake.
Love you always and forever
