Daughter, you bring us so much joy. You make life unpredictable in the most amazing ways.
Today you turn three and I still remember the teeny little baby that I birthed and nursed. I miss those days sometimes, but I'm so excited to see you turn into an amazing woman. Strong. Knowledgeable. Funny. Obstinate. Sweet. Loving. Silly. God-Following. Mom-Correcting. And eventually... Maternal.

Every year, every day, every step is an adventure being your mother. Thank you for teaching me what true love is. Thank you for teaching me the meaning of motherhood. If ever I had a purpose in life, I know that it is to be your mother. I have no doubts about that. You make me proud to be called Mama. I tell everyone that I'm a mother. Because it is a privilege to be your mother.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am for you. I prayed for you before you were born. I prayed for you while you were in my womb. I prayed for you. You were the child I prayed for in every way. I am blessed by you. I look forward every day to be hugged by you and to kiss your little lips. My prayer, sweet girl, is to someday earn that unconditional love you so easily give to me. I don't deserve it, but I promise to try every day of my life to deserve you.

You are my greatest blessing.
