In the blink of an eye

We made a wish, and you came true.
We made a wish, God gave us you.

I blinked and in that second…
my baby grew up into a beautiful little girl.

November 18, 2003, four short years ago.
A princess arrived and changed our lives forever.
You are amazing, funny, intelligent, talented, kind, charming and strong.
I see glimpses in you now, of the woman you will become, and it blows me away.
I am honored to be your mother, I am blessed to be the one to guide you and teach you, although, I think I learn more from you; than you do from me.
I hope you always laugh without reservation, love without fear, dance in the rain and know without a doubt that you are loved unconditionally. At four, you know all of this… I hope at 14, 24 and even 44… you still know this as you do now.
You are loved and I am blessed.
Happy 4th Birthday princess.
Love then, now and always,
