I swear time just keeps on flying. I am about to put books on your head so you stop growing. Your an amazing, sweet hearted girl and you bring so much joy to so many peoples lives. I don't think I could be as happy as I am without you in my life, you brighten up my world and make me see a positive side of the world verses the ugly side.
As a mother it can scare me to see all the horrible things happening and not know how to shield you from all the hate in this world. I know there is only so much I can do to protect you, and one day you'll have a million questions and I may only have so many answers but at this moment I want you to know that no matter how evil a person can be, they are still a human being. They have parents just like you. You may see the dark side of them and how evil they are, and its sad for us to see that people can be like that, but always remember that just because someone is a bad person does not mean everyone is.
It seems like my generation has seen a lot of pain in the world, a lot more then they used to broadcast in your Grandparents day. I've seen terror attacks on our homeland and I have seen the sadness in your father to losing friends who died in a war. But as much pain in the world that I have seen, I've always seen a bigger side of it all.
I read a quote after the Boston Marathon bombings that said this...
" You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops in the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. "
I'm sure as you get older you'll see your fair share of hate from other people, whether its in school or just on the news, and everytime you do I hope you see that quote in your head and remember that not everyone is evil. Brightness can and will over come darkness. You may not understand this now, but you will when your older and I hope you always see the good in the world. This world can be a beautiful place, you just have to remember that.
I love you forever and always my darling. Keep smiling and making everyone laugh.
Your a wonderful person.
