A poem to my daughter:

Sometimes I wonder if you see you the way that I do
You’re beautiful on the inside and out, I love you through and through
I’m so proud of you and all that you are, your accomplishments
Baby girl you’re a rising star, you’re going to go far in life this I do not doubt
You will have some bumps in the road, but mom is here to help you out
You don’t understand how much you mean to me, your my twin, my mini-me
When God made me your mom it warmed my heart so much
That he would trust me with you to love you so much
I’ve seen you grow to be an amazing young lady
Your heart is so big, you show compassion and lately, you wonder if you have what it takes to succeed in this world
You do have what it takes to makes this world better
I’m so proud of you I wish I could measure
All that you are and all that you do
I couldn’t be more proud of you
I love the young women your becoming more and more
I know that God has more in store for you
Those these times are tough right now
You hold your head up high and know that we will get through this together
There is nothing that you can’t accomplish with God on your side
Did I mention how proud of you I am, this much I can not hide

  1. So beautiful!! Things we need to hear as daughters. We don’t always know if we’re doing it right as moms or as daughters. Your support and encouragement will fuel her confidence in her own power more than you know ❤

  2. Your daughter is so so blessed to have you…and to have these words to resonate in her heart and mind. It would have helped me bypass so many struggles to hear these words from my mom. Bless her heart, she was so full of her own insecurities, that so much of her negative thoughts toward herself came out in words toward me. She said one particular thing that I’m yet to ‘fully’ recover from… As I continue to pray and work through it, I know the Lord is working something amazing in my heart and life. Forgiveness, for sure… but more of a rising above the pain…knowing that is with me in the pain and that He suffered more pain and rejection than I can begin to fathom… ‘for’ me. It is definitely a journey. I can only hope your precious girl knows just how blessed she is to have a mom like you!🥰 And I am guessing she does! What a treasure, what a gift, what a legacy… the heart of a loving, supportive, encouraging mother. God bless you many times over for the way you have blessed her and me! 💖💐💕🌷💖

    1. You have me in tears right now. I wish your mom would have spoken life and love into you. To be honest I wished my mom would have done the same to me, but she didn’t. It was a lot of negative and less positive. I want to give my kids what I never got. I tell and show them that I love them daily. I with you on working through forgiveness. It’s a process. I 🙏 she does know how much I really care about her. Thank you for your kind words. They mean more than you will understand.

      1. Oh, I can only think that she ‘would’ see that! Your poem says it all so beautifully. It was my desire as well to pass on to my two sons the positive love and encouragement that I did not receive. It seems to me that if we let Him, God truly does use our negative influences to shape us into His image. Like sanding the rough edges off a piece of wood, those experiences smooth us out in some way. It blesses me so deeply to know that you understand. I have to wonder if your childhood experience caused you to be more determined to love you daughter the way you do.

        One day I was praying on my way to church saying, “Lord, I just really need a hug today…a word of encouragement…to feel loved by someone.” And you know that Voice that speaks to your heart, the One you know is not coming from your own thoughts? When you know it is the Holy Spirit? He said to me, “Give away what you need.” It made me realize that others needed what I needed as well, and that day I believe I truly saw the power of His love… From my own need and weakness, I hugged my dear sisters in Christ, loved and encouraged them, and as a result, I too was hugged back, loved and encouraged.

        I just wanted to share that with you because that is exactly what I see you doing with your dear daughter… out of your great need, you have given and are giving her what you needed…and in return, I believe she will pass it on to her children…and yes, hopefully, back to you! Thank you for engaging in conversation with me. This has truly been a link in my healing process. I pray we both are formed more into His image as He strengthens us to give His love away! God bless you, dear sister! 🙏🏻🌷✝️💖

      2. Thank you so much for your kind words. I too had to start giving people what I needed. And in return they are giving me what I need. I truly enjoyed your comments. It’s confirmation for me.
