Today, I am so proud of my daughter. She wrote in her journal yesterday and shared it with me this morning. I asked her if I could share it with you.
I bought this journal for her 9th birthday in 2008. I bought it as a Mother/Daughter journal. She and I would both write in it back and forth to each other. I forget where I even got the idea from. Anyway, we haven’t written much in it, and for some reason, she picked it up to write in.
Here is her entry, word for word:
I’ve made alot of mistakes but everyone makes mistakes right. For example I made a mistake not writing in this journal for so long. I’ve made a mistake of kicking, slaping and harming my brother. In fact evan when a day can be terrible theres always evan the tinyist thing good about it. You just have to feel good inside and make the best of it. Like tomorrow me and mom are going to sew together. When ever somthing bad happens my mom and dad and somtimes my brother help me through it.
That’s all I want to say + I have to have breakfeast.
This is what I wrote this morning:
Oh, my darling daughter! I am so proud of you!
I am so glad that you see that everyone makes mistakes and has “terrible” days. It is part of life.
Know that I am always, always, always here for you when you need me. You are growing up into such a wonderful, beautiful girl! I love you so much!
She is truly special, don’t you agree!? 🙂
