Dear Sweetheart

Today, July 17, happens to be my daughter’s birthday and I planned to write her a letter to let her know how special she is for me 🙂


Dear Sweetheart,

Just like every mother, this time around the year, I also go through a little trip down memory lane to the time when I held you in my arms for the first time.
It’s really hard to remember how my life was before you were born. What did I do when I got back home from work? Where all did I go to spend my weekends? Was it dull or exciting? Did I have space? How did I fill my empty hours? Ever since you came, life changed in ways unimaginable, for me. That much is true. I start my day and end it with you. I don’t get as much sleep or ‘my time’, but that’s how my life is now. And, for sure, you’re worth every ounce of shape that I lost, every trip to the discotheque I gave up, every under-eye bag.  Because once you smile, it just outweighs everything I traded for it.
The good is great!  The way that you draw small little figures on a piece of paper and scribble my name over one of them. The way you listen to any kind of music and throw yourself into a dance like no one’s looking. The way you chatter about every small thing that occurs through the day. The way you turn around to give me a goodbye kiss just before boarding your school bus. The way you ask random questions- what, where, how, who, when…. and so on. The way you make up songs only you understand with missing words here and there. The way you warm the heart of each person who you engage with.
The last few days (actually….. months) have been a countdown for your birthday for you and you have been waiting for all the gifts that would find their way in your toy box, some from your list and some not.  You have been so excited to celebrate with your friends, to dress up in that dress you love, the kind of cake that you’d like for the day. Your eager eyes making plans for your favorite day…. And just watching you there makes me smile and hold my tears. Already a 6 year old? I am not sure, how these years, just passed so comfortably, with you. But I do. And it’s you.
This time, six years ago you made me a mum and life was never the same. I am forever grateful. Forever changed. Forever your mom.
I love you forever, my sweet angel. Happy 6th birthday!
Mama xx
