I just adore you. You make middle-child life look easy. You are so many things: trustworthy, dependable, and brave. Loving, kind-hearted, compassionate. You are a peace-keeper. An achiever of things. You are brilliant, and good, and funny. I just love your sense of humor. You are actually, genuinely funny.
As you embark into unchartered teenage territory, my prayer for you is that you will remain true to yourself. Being a teenager is hard. Friendships become more complicated, and you have to figure out how to navigate through all kinds of situations again, as you are no longer a child, but not yet an adult. As you change and grow and take on the world, always remember who’s you are, and who you are. You are a daughter of the King. And you are mine. Always be yourself, my girl. I think you’re pretty amazing just the way you are.
