Dear Daughters

Dear Daughters,

We were listening to a JJ Heller song in the car last week.  You wanted to know what the song was about.  It was about how God loves us for who we are.  We talked at great length about the chorus which says, "who will love me for me? Not for what I have done or what I might become"  It made me think of how I love you.  Sadly, I'm sinful and I never get this love for you perfect like God does but I wanted you to know:  I LOVE YOU! 

Before you were even born God put a seed of love for you in my heart.  You didn't do anything to earn that love.  It was just there.  Yes, the first time I laid eyes on you I loved you even more, that first smile, your laugh, the way you tell jokes that don't make any sense, when you make up songs about God with hysterically long words in them, it all makes my heart happy.  You bring such joy and happiness to my life!

And because you didn't earn my love, YOU CAN NEVER LOOSE MY LOVE!  Please hear that.  I know there are days you don't feel my love and make no mistake there are days I will be disappointed in you, embarrassed by your decisions, and sad by the choices you make BUT those things don't mean I will love you any less.  My love for you is so much deeper than the choices you make. 

So please keep these words in your heart and know that you can always come to me.  No matter what mistake you make I will love you.  You can't mess up big enough to loose my love. 



  1. Oooh, what a great way to say it, "And because you didn't earn my love, YOU CAN NEVER LOSE MY LOVE!"

    This is great.

  2. Okay, so I have come to depend on your blog for my comic relief...you always have some funny comment I am hysterical about...not this time! No...you make me cry! How dare you! :) In all seriousness, beautiful truth. And, at least you made me laugh on your comment to Tara! I feel a photo race coming on!


I love comments!
