Thoughts from a mother's heart on her daughter's second birthday.

Dear Baby Girl,

Today you turn two years old. Where has the time gone? Two years ago at 3 am in the morning I held you for the first time. My miracle. My little angel, My daughter. My life, identity, and purpose forever change in that moment.

Before you were born everyone questioned your name. They questioned why I would give my daughter permission to be strong by giving you such a powerful name. Today you might not understand what your name means, but one day you will and I pray that you use all of your strength for God’s purpose, because trust me you are going to have a whole lot of it.

Everyday I see more of myself in you, and through that you push me to be better in every area of my life. I want to be the best version of myself for you. We have developed a bond that I never imagined to have with my daughter. Honestly, before you I thought I was going to be a boy mom, but the moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew everything was going to be different and I was going to be a girl mom. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My prayers for you are large and mighty. My prayers for your father’ s and my parenting are desperate yet hopeful. Being a parent is not easy, simple or straightforward. It is a long, messy, rewarding road.

To my daughter. My smart, strong, beautiful daughter, the world is yours.

Love Mama


You are forever strong. You are forever smart. You are forever pretty.

  1. Sweet post. Love the idea. As a mom to 4, three of which are girls, I wished I had done this. Now mine are 20 (married), 17 (almost 18) and 14. Thanks for sharing.
