To Emily from Daddy,
Hi sweetie, I know you have been looking at your blog lately, so I thought I would write you something to remind you of how special you truly are. It has been 5 years since the doctors had told Mommy and I that there was something going on in your belly. I am not really sure how to tell you in words about that day, but it was a very crazy time for everyone. Everything that you have been through over the years, you always have done it with your beautiful smile.
I remember when you asked me, “Daddy have you ever cried?” Yes, I have a bunch of times when I feel sad. when you didn’t feel good, when you were not able to do things the others kids would do. When you were sad inside, I was very sad too. But these days my tears are happy, when i watch you walk Brianna to class, when you received student of the year, your first cheer practice, when your team won the County Battle. Watching you grow up and become the little lady you are, how you are loving and caring to your little cousin Jenna, the bond you have with Aunt Tricia, the loyalty you have to your friends, and your passion for the things that are so important to you. I could go on and on!
I have learned so much from you over these past 8 years and I am very proud to be your Dad.
We are so lucky to have someone like your Mommy in our lives, how devoted and caring she is to our family & whenever you didn’t feel well she was always an arms reach away. I just want you to know that no matter how old you are, how good or bad things may be or the path in life that you choose to take, Mommy and Daddy are right behind you.
I just hope someday that you will be half as proud of me, as I am of you.
I love You very much, Merry Christmas
