Simone is 6
As the day’s nearing, I found myself remembering several years back. The time when I had you, your first poop, the first time you got sick, how I used to cry in the office everyday because I had to leave you behind, and everything else in fast, chronological order seemed to appear like a movie trailer. I can’t believe it’s been six years.
Thank you Simone for growing to become the daughter I have always prayed for. I pray that you will always follow God’s path in your life, as young as may be. I thank the Lord for adding another year into your life. I thank Him because He has entrusted me with such a big blessing in the life of you and I will always feel grateful that He gave me you.
This year, I’ve seen a lot of growth in you. The transition of being a toddler to a preschooler has been an interesting one. I love that you’re very interested in studying and learning. It makes me happy that you enjoy what you do in school. I’m proud of all your accomplishments. It’s not what you have accomplished but it’s the effort that you put into that I’m at my proudest mom-self. J Thank you for being the sweetest daughter, always making notes to mommy, making love letters and banners saying “You’re the best mommy”. Thank you that even at a young age, you always try to take care of mommy. Thank you for your super funny antics, jokes, quotable quotes that not only make my day complete, but those who read my FB wall as well. Thank you for being a student who always have the initiative to study. I’m so happy I don’t have to force you to do your assignments. I’m just glad I’m blessed with who you are. You’re not a perfect daughter but im not a perfect mom. We’ll always have things to quarrel about, you’ll always find ways to be “mad” at daddy but know that we will always love you anak. We will always take care of you as God has entrusted us with the greatest blessing of our lives… you J
