Today You Are You!
"Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!"
And you are absolutely perfect just the way you are.
You are kind and loving.
You are cautious yet fearless, a trait that comes with having older brothers.
You are silly and quirky with the best laugh around.
It starts deep down inside, working upwards slowly, steady.
And when you don't expect, it shouts its way out.
It shouts pure joy and pure happiness.
It spreads smiles every where we go.
Your joy is contagious, never forget that.
You are gentle and caring.
You are a good friend, a good sister, and an amazing daughter.
You are you.
Maya Angelou once said,“I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.” I know that you are well onto your path of becoming this woman, of becoming a confident, intelligent, courageous and loving woman. I know that you will teach and share this message to all who surround you. You may only be five, but your strength already amazes me. Happy fifth birthday my love!
