Toddle Along Tuesday - Hopes & Dreams

I have a lot of hopes and dreams for you.

First and foremost I hope that you are happy. That you find happiness in others, in your life choices and mostly in yourself.

I hope that you are a strong woman who believes in herself and her ability to accomplish anything you choose.

I hope that you stand up for your beliefs and opinions, whatever they may be. People will disagree with you, but it shouldn't be reason to change your stance.

I hope that you are kind and accepting of others.

I hope that you follow your heart and do the things in life that truly make you happy letting nothing stop you on your way to whatever greatness you chose.

I hope that you embrace life and every opportunity it offers you. You will make a difference to someone, somewhere.

I hope that you love openly and with all your hear.

One day daddy and I will beam proudly from the bleachers as you graduate. We will hug & kiss & cry on your wedding day as you marry a man who will make you as happy as daddy has made me. (or else) We will kiss your babies.

I want to offer you anything and everything we possibly can to help you realize whatever dream or ambition you have.

No matter where this world takes you, I'm proud to be your momma. I will be there to hold you and wipe your tears. To pick you up and get you started again.
