My Dear Alexandra,
As we sat around the table enjoying breakfast on Sunday morning, you told me that you were so happy you woke up a 4 year old. We did some serious celebrating the day before, and I was glad to see that you were still beaming with joy.
As you licked your sticky apple fritter fingers, I marveled at your beauty while being mesmerized by your wit. Ahhh, sweet girl. As bittersweet as your birthdays are, I’m so glad that you not only woke up a 4 year old, but that you woke up my daughter.
You’re spunky and smart, and from age 3 to 4 you seem to have blossomed overnight. Our conversations never disappoint, and I take full advantage of those rare moments that you allow me to hold you close. I have each detail of your face memorized but that doesn’t stop me from staring whenever I have the chance. I love reading to you at night, and even when I’m exhausted my heart bubbles over with glee when you reach out and hold my hand.
I could say so much, sweet darling, but it still wouldn’t be enough. I hope that one day you’ll understand how you’ve forever changed my life.
‘Love You More’ are the words on your shirt and they barely scratch the surface of the depths of my love for you.
I do love you more. I will always love you more. More than myself, and more than words can express. At 4, 14, 40 and beyond, Alexandra, precious girl, never, ever forget your mama’s love. ❤️
EMBRACE HIS GRACE,
