In what feels like the blink of an eye my girl who has a special place in my heart is becoming a teenager.

I can't begin to capture the joy and happiness that she creates.
(Is it too dramatic to say that? Will she think that I'm a right old softie?)

I do think it's safe to say that she knows that she is loved and she knows that I am proud of her and of the way that she is growing into a beautiful young lady. I feel really lucky that we still have valuable chat time and there are many life lessons that over time I'll share with her.  I could probably write a book of them, but I'm sure someone has beaten me to that!

Now as she hovers on the cusp of the next milestone in life I wonder what's ahead of her?

Her dreams are not my dreams and vice versa but I do wish her certain things.

  • I hope that she continues to approach life with a smile on her face.
  • I hope that she maintains the compassion, kindness and respect that she has for others and can practise this on herself too!
  • I hope that she makes life long and meaningful friendships with people that will love her as she deserves to be loved.
  • I hope that she finds her voice in the world and isn't afraid to use it.
  • I hope that she can keep building her resilience and that her heart will be strong enough to manage those challenges that will inevitably come her way.
  • I hope that she never forgets that I will always be her biggest supporter...Yes, there will be times that I won't necessarily agree with everything that she chooses and does...(I'm not that naive), but I will be there for her. 

So to my teenage Sibsy girl - get prepared to over-live your life, open your eyes and embrace opportunities, give things a go, have fun along the way, and don't forget your manners!

Love you now, always and forever 
(and more than you'll ever know...)
Cariad mawr,

PS, My other hope for her is that the pierced ears that she has patiently waited seven years for won't hurt too much!
