A Birthday Letter to my 8-year old Daughter

Bea @ 8

My dearest Bea,

My how time flies! One minute, I'm just cradling you in my arms. In another, you've fast becoming a young lady.

We've been through a lot together. But unlike your little brother, you have stood as mute witness to what we have been through. For that, I am truly sorry and I ask for your forgiveness and understanding.

And through that we have survived, by sheer grace of God.

Remember always to have faith in Him and to thank Him constantly for what He has done for us. Be thankful for the many blessings He has showered and shall continue to shower upon you. In return, He only asks that you keep straight your path and true.

Always maintain your light and bubbly disposition despite all trials and challenges that you will face. And may you learn to forgive and let go, despite of it all.

Always remember that Nico and I will always be there for you whenever you need us. As do your grandfather, grandmother, your aunt and uncle and your cousins.

And we love you with all our hearts.

May you have a healthy body, a healthy heart and a healthy soul. And may all your dreams come true despite of it all.

Semper fidelis. Always faithful. That's is my one promise to you.

Love,
Daddy
