I haven’t thought of a name for you as yet – your Papa and I are still arguing over it. But whatever we call you, you are always going to be our sweetheart!
Thanks for bestowing on me the honour of being a mother. And for being God’s most unsullied blessing in our life.
As I long to hold you in my arms, I know that my life is about to change forever. Forever beautiful, and I look forward to growing up with you all over again!
When I saw you for the first time during the Ultrasound, you held out your palm and I imagined the lines on them – clear and strong. I felt that your eyes were open and you had an unflinching gaze. It told me that you were ready to take this world head on! You are Destiny’s child, my sweetheart, and I welcome you into this new world.
A crazy world!
A new place to battle for survival, but live it like there’s no other.
Face challenges and challenge yourself.
Be strong, yet humble.
Be happy and make others happy.
Find out who you really are and carve your own destiny.
Lead the world with your actions, not words.
Live for something. Do something.
As I will soon hold you high in my arms and watch you looking up to the sky, I can imagine how your brilliance will shadow the sun.
We will guide you, but be your own person.
Let the storms be humbled by your courage.
Let your wings unfurl fearlessly and scale the highest mountains.
Know the good well and the evil even better.
Compete, but with yourself.
Aim for the stars, but be grounded.
Shatter myths, but be rooted.
Love and respect this one chance that God has given you to make this world a better place.
Let your journey to celebrate this life begin.
Welcome home, my sweetheart, welcome home!
