To My Sweet Little Bird:

(found here)

My Dearest Blaykleigh:

    It won't be long now until you are in my arms. Lately, I find myself thinking about all the things I want to teach you, all the things that it has taken myself years to learn. I pray that I know enough about being a Godly woman to raise one.

    For starters I suppose, it's good to know how quickly life can pass you by; it takes a firm hearted person to wake up each morning happy and thankful for what the day will bring - rain or shine. So don't take even the dullest of moments for granted, time isn't reversible.

    I hope to teach you that beauty comes from the inside first and if you work hard to obtain inner beauty it is then that it will shine through for others to see. One's appearance and the way they carry themselves can never turn ugly faster than when you act ugly from the inside. Always remember that your looks are only a carrier of your soul and do not define you as a person.

    I will teach you to never compare yourself or what you have in life to others; for that will only set you up for failure. You will be blessed and so very loved, in the end that is all that matters.

    Day in and day out, I will instill in you the importance of being loving, gracious, kind-hearted and sympathetic to all around you. For the smallest of creatures to the largest of men deserve the same respect you wish to attain yourself.

    Some people won't like you and that is okay. Don't go through life trying to please everyone for you will only lose bits of yourself. And with that, don't ever be ashamed of who you are ...

"Be who you are, and say what you feel. Because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

    My sweet little bird, there is so much yet in life for you to learn. Those above are just a few important lessons worth jotting down. There will be many more in the days, weeks and years to follow as you grow from my sweet little girl into the beautiful Godly woman you are meant to be.

    Your dad and I can't wait to finally meet you; you will undoubtedly be welcomed into a home and a life full of everlasting love!

   Until then ...
     Momma loves you! 


...  And when the birds sing in the morning 
I'll be a mama
I'll have a daughter
I'll be a mama
I'll have a daughter

And I'll give her melodies 
I'll give her melodies

And she'll be
My little bird
And then she'll fly
She'll fly
