My dear daughter,
You turn three today. Three years of excitement, thrill and adventures. A carefree life with food in the mouth, poop in the diaper and sleep in mama’s arms.
This is what these years are. And no matter how much I pray that your life be filled with the same luxury, I tell you life is not as you see it, now. It is far from fairy tales. This is why I never told you any fairy tale.
Life is a serious business and I wish you embrace it responsibly.
May you grow to be a women of strength. May you stay away from the fake people, fake world. As you grow you will learn the difference between fake and real. May your life be filled with wisdom, courage to stand for the truth, the knowledge of right, to fight for what is right & may your life be surrounded with people who love you for what you are.
Life is unpredictable. I would love to be there for you always, to take you in my arms, hug you tight and let you know everything’s just fine. But I might not be around always. Learn to stand on your own. We all fall, just learn to stand up gracefully and avoid to fall for the same reason. Remember even when I’m not there, God is there. He has always been and He will always be there. Close your eyes and feel him hugging you. He will whisper “all is well” in you heart. That’s the only place I wish you refer for advice, for help, for anything. There is only one God. He will always answer you, may be not with what you want.
You will find people who will discourage you. There will be times you will feel like a toy. Yes, we all feel that way. Never forget you are the most precious gift for us, your mama your baba. And even if we are not there you and your value has not fallen a bit.
I am sure your little mind and inquisitive personality will raise so many “why’s and but’s” I don’t want you to understand it now. I don’t know when, and if I would be around at that time to explain. Just read it and make sense out of it. I am sure you wil
Lastly, my endless wishes for you. May you live a healthy, long life filled with peace and contentment. May you always be protected for what ever is evil, always be surrounded with love and may you always find happiness deep inside your heart.
I am also sorry I never bought you a fancy cake, or expensive gifts. Its not we could not afford it, I want you to learn the value of money, to know how blessed you are and to contribute the extra pennies that don’t really matter in providing you happiness but can fill up the empty stomachs. That might save a life . You have to collect these rewards to claim your points in the end.
I love you, even before you were born. And these are my dreams for after which I named you “Tabeer”.
