Dear My Future Daughter

I want you to know that my love for you is as deep as the ocean. That nothing will even make me stop loving you. Yes I’m 20 and writing you this letter forever in advance because these are things I never want to forget to share with you. If something were to ever happen I want you to know all of this and so much more…


Dear my future daughter,

I can already feel in my heart that you will change the world with your courageous spirit, and vibrant personality. Your smile will melt the heart of everyone you meet… including mine the first time I get to hold you. You have the most beautiful eyes, they hold innocence and a look of “please feed me because I’m going to start getting hangry”. Your small now but boy will you have a big heart and personality.

I’m going to try my hardest to protect you but I know that won’t be easy because you’re going to want to fly before you can even walk. You’re going to have dreams and plans and I will support and believe in every single one. Why? Because I know you can do it and if anyone can ladybug, it’s you. I can’t protect you from everything but I can protect you from yourself.

Don’t ever let me hear “I’m not good enough”, “but mom I’m not pretty enough”, “I’m not skinny enough” because YOU are beautiful. There is not a single flaw on you or in your body. God made you from scratch and placed every piece of you together and taught me to love you from the second I found out about you. Every piece of you was hand crafted to form your irreplaceable soul. From every hair on your head to every heart beat in your chest, it was all made accordingly. Darling, you are gorgeous on the outside but what matters is what lies on the inside. As long as your heart stays pure and sweet then you have nothing to be ashamed of.

Life won’t be easy… because you’re like me. People will always try to knock you down ladybug… but you pick your chin up, dust of your dress, fluff your hair and keep on fighting your way through life. Why? Because you are a strong young woman that never backs down from a challenge, you always rise to the occasion. You are a leader, you carve your own path and walk to the beat of your own drum.

One day a boy is going to shatter your heart, but you are strong and the pain you feel is only temporary. You learned a lesson, how to love another human being. He taught you what you will want in the man that will one day sweep you off your feet. On the contrary he also taught you what you do not want in a man one day. This pain you feel will soon fade, but in the heartache I will hold you and tell you it is all going to be okay and that you were to good for him; I will remind you that you are a strong independent young women and destined to do the unimaginable things.

Your light is bright and no one has the ability to dim it. Don’t settle for less than what you’re worth with people or jobs. Even on the days when we banter back and forth yelling and it feels like the end of the world… it isn’t.  No matter the circumstance my love for you is as deep as the ocean. darling, we will butt heads and it’s all because I want you to be the strongest woman possible that respects authority but, never loses her identity or spunk.

On the days where you feel the lowest… I’m here for you to cry on my shoulder. When that boy breaks your heart, I’ll be here to pick you back up and dust you off. When life doesn’t go accordingly I’ll be here to remind you of your worth. You can do the most spectacular things and I don’t want you to forget how truly incredible you are on the inside. I hope to be half of the mother mine was for me, and I hope to give you the world one day. I’ll be far from perfect, but we can stumble through life together.

My advice to you: Don’t ever stop exploring, Always challenge yourself to do something you never thought you could, Be vulnerable, Love yourself, Always say please and thank you, Mr. and Mrs. before any name to an adult, answer with yes ma’am, no ma’am, yes sir, no sir, say your prayers and always kiss your momma goodnight.

I love you from the deepest part of my heart.

Your {long ways out} momma,

Grace
