Third Letter to my Daughter

Welcome to my next Letter to My Children.  It is a good thing that I have a monthly deadline for these letter so that I keep writing them!  My hesitation is to skip a month because I am busy, but it is always worth making the time and thinking about how thankful I am for my kiddos.  This letter is to my daughter E.  To read my previous letter to her, click here.

Dear E,

I am glad we attended the Mother-Daughter weekend retreat together.  We had a chance to spend time just the two of us, which doesn't happen too often.  We also got to do great activities like star gazing, 40' wall climbing, archery and crafts.  At one of the sessions, the speaker talked about three things she tells her kids every day.  1- You are awesome! 2- I know you will make good decisions.  3- Even if you don't, I will always love you.  I love this!  Everyone should hear that!

You are awesome E!  I know you will make good decisions.  And even if you don't, I will always love you!
