I want you to know something and remember always that mama loves you.
I wish I could spend some more time with you to see you grow, to give you shower, and to play with you; but it is time for mama to say goodbye. I'm going to our Lord's place only to meet you again and hold you in my arms soon. As I will not be around to tell you these things when you grow-up, I want to write and keep it for you.
Baby, I want you to understand that your daddy loves you a lot. There will be time when he will be tough on you only for your good. Keep in mind that he is performing a dual role of being your mother and father, so don't misunderstand him ever.
Now, very important rules of life that I wanted to share with you are listed here, so pay attention to these.
* In all situations, praise the Lord, no matter how tough the time gets.
* When you feel lonely and put down, surrender yourself in the hands of God for He will take care of you.
* Be kind and gentle to all at all times. There will be times when you'll have to make difficult decisions, but understand that you can't please all at all times. Stick to the path of righteousness.
* With time you'll notice people come to and walk out of your life. Few people will change for good and bad, but you don't stop loving and caring for them.
Now, you will ask, "Mama, why do I be good to those who hurt me?"
Love will only bring blessings to others and you, but if you turn bitter inside, you'll mess up everything. Your emotions (respect, love, kindness) should not be limited to others staying in your life or others being good to you.
Here is one last thing before I stop writing—stay close to God and He'll draw close to you to guide you in this journey of life.
You know you have a beautiful smile and I want you to treasure it at all times.
Love and Blessings!
