Letters to Our Daughter - October 15, 2013

Dear E,

More than words.

I love you, more than words can ever express.

I find it so hard to believe we are approaching 4 years since you suddenly appeared in our life.

You've shown since day 1 that you believe you are in control.

You remind me every day that you think so.  Just today we had a verbal battle over just where the pumpkin was to be placed.  You finally felt like you "won" when you turned him around to face the other way.  And you had the last word.

Yes.  We fought over a pumpkin.  And I'm sure this isn't the first time we will fight over something so trivial.

Our days ahead will be difficult too.  Life is hard.  It throws you curve balls, pulls the rug out from under you, hands you lemons, whatever phrase you want to use.

But it's beautiful.

And you are a fighter.  You've proved it.  Every single day of your life.  I love how you were so intent on getting up that slide today.  How you kept going at it different ways.  How you wouldn't give up.  You finally made it.

Never give up, baby girl.  I'll never give up on you.
