You’re entering high school and this will be a time of fun and difficulty you will be faced with many challenges, but know that you can overcome them all. There will be days when you feel like the most beautiful girl in the world and other days you will feel like you want to crawl under a rock and hide. That’s ok and perfectly normal. Remember that you are beautiful and your dad and I love you past the moon. Don’t beat yourself up for doing what is right when others do what is wrong. That’s what separates you from the pack. You come from a great family of leaders and just remember that same blood runs through your veins. As parents we know there will be boys and that’s ok. There will be “that guy” who you think is the one. Trust me when I say take your time, enjoy high school and all it has to offer, you only get to experience it one time. You will encounter people who want to use you for what they can get, pray for the spirit of discernment in your life and remember to stay true to your morals and values.
My darling daughter there will be a lot of pressure to have sex, use drugs, skip school and do all kinds of things that you know are wrong. Everyone may be “doing it” but that doesn’t mean you have to. You may want to experiment with some of these things and as your mother I want you to come and talk to me about your feelings so we can discuss them. I’m not that “cool mom” that will let you do whatever you want and wear things that make you look 20 instead of 14. I am “that mom” who loves the hell out of you and will listen to whatever you have to tell me about boys, girls, sex, drugs and whatever else you want to talk about. I will be in your business because you are my business and. Please know that I love you and will go to hell and back for you! You may not like me for it now but when you get older you’ll love me for it and be glad that I did it. I don’t expect you to agree with all the decisions I make and that is ok. You probably won’t “get it” because you have not lived as long as I have lived. You don’ have the wisdom and life experience I have, trust me your day will come, but don’t rush it.
God gave you to me to love, protect and cherish. I loved you before I knew you were girls in my womb. I protected you before I even saw your pretty face and I will protect you until I am in my grave. There is nothing you can do to make me stop loving you. Just know that I am here for you and I want nothing but the best for you. My darling daughter you are BEAUTIFUL, AWESOME, SMART and YOU ROCK!
P.s. Happy Mother's Day Mama's!
