To you:

Its a fact, there is something about you.
Its different, I can see it your eyes. I loved you before I knew you. I honestly don't know what I did to deserve a girl like you. Kitkat, you see... I am trying. I am trying so hard to ensure you have the chance to live life with eyes wide open. I want you to experience it all and think for yourself. I always thought you were special. That's what all moms think of their children but, the older you become the more I see just how bright you can be. You watch and take notes of the world around you before speaking. You are sensitive to peoples feeling and quick to apologize. You ask questions till I'm annoyed and will debate your point of view relentlessly. You are fearless to put yourself out there yet, weary of predictable pain. You remind me so much of myself but, a far better version. As your mother, I can only hope god knew what he was doing entrusting me with you. You are my little lady and along with your brother, my only constant. You made me what I am, you give me something to be proud of. I hope you know, I need you and I love you so, so very much. Don't let the simple fears hinder you from finding who you are and becoming what I know you will be. The waters warm...
love mom
