I am sitting here today, feeling the way I have lately. A little tired, and a little worn out. Right now you are cleaning my house so diligently. I didn't even have to ask. I am so proud of you. Its really hard for me to even write this without tears. But I want you to know how much I love and appreciate you. Here you are, cleaning up your room and the rest of the house. Organizing and putting things where they go. You were so excited to show me your room, and you did such a good job. I can't believe you are already 5 1/2 years old. It seems like not too long ago when it was just you and me. I cried before your sister was born, because I knew that your time as my one and only was coming to an end. But you never seemed to mind. You've welcomed every sibling with complete love and joy. You've always had such a vibrant personality. Always so "grown up". So sweet and so obedient. I'm sorry for the times I've yelled at you. You have been such a help to me with your little siblings. I know you will make a wonderful mom someday. I hope to be a good example and teacher to you. I love you. Thank you for all you do for me, and for all that you teach me every day.
Love Your Mom
