About Me, Motherhood

An Open Letter to My Daughter on Her 5th Birthday



Dear Aimee,

Five. When did you grow up? I’ll look through photographs of when you fit in my arms and wonder where all the time went. I remember when you struggled to communicate your needs, and now you regale me of tales that you invented in your dreams.

My sweet daughter . . . in my eyes, you will always be the one who made me a mother. You taught me to love deeper, wider, and farther than I ever imagined I could. You stretched my heart to cover places where I didn’t even know I needed your love.

I thank God this year, and every year, that I have the privilege of knowing you and loving you. When I turned five, I began to retain memories — memories that I hold to this day, as an adult. I remember the pink and purple dress I always wore. I remember the feeling of your grandmother pulling taut the strands of my hair when she puzzled them into braids. I remember feeling shame when I couldn’t nap at school, and I was supposed to. I would stay awake and peek my eyes open at the other kids around me, in deep slumber, and wonder how they did it?

I pray that the memories you keep and hold onto into adulthood are ones of joy, happiness, bright & lovely moments of feeling so confidently — like the unbridled assurance that your next breath will come, that you are loved.

I love you, Aimee.
Happy Birthday.

Love,
Mommy
