Shake Hands Dummy!


Gentle Advice to Help You Succeed, With Much Love

Dear Daughter:

At almost 13, your journey in life is going to be at times challenging but you can rise to the occasion. You are equipped with a support system out of this world. Learn to trust the advice of those who love you because their advice comes from a heart that cares about you. You've done so many things right already!

When you think life is not fair and it seems like your heart will break into, remember to trust those whose heart wants your best interest. You are already a good problem solver.

Change your way of thinking from negative thoughts to positive and you can change the world.

When you think friends are all that matter, remember who will pay the bills when you are on your own. Later, when you are a great success, they'll ask you how you did it.

Remember education is power and no one has too much knowledge on the road to success. I'm glad you love to do so many things hands-on.

Don't ever settle for less than what God intended for your life. Expect miracles to get them. Always have a vision because without one, a person can't get far. Keep setting goals and reaching them!

You are strong willed and make a good leader so choose your path well to lead others down because you will be responsible for where you lead others. I know you know that already. I'm just reminding you.

Love yourself, respect yourself but always give to the less fortunate. Work hard because that's where character building begins. You have a great heart, a tender heart and I know you have more to give!

Always remember God sang on the day you born. He has a special plan for you. You do not belong to me but to Him. Pray always. Call out to God and He will save you.

I love you, Mom

      I think you did an awesome job on it. That's a very special love letter you've written for your special daughter. She has to be as proud of you as you are of her. I'm sure she will cherish it always.
