I was cleaning up my bookshelf when I came across my baby book. Inside, I found a letter my mom wrote to me.
A mother's love really is a beautiful thing.
I have finally gotten around to writing to you in your book. You are going to be 3 in a couple of months and so I'd say it's about time. Your daddy and I were so happy and excited when it was finally time to go to the hospital to have you. We were also kind of nervous and worried because when I had Timothy the good Lord decided he wanted to keep him in heaven. But then Dr. Andresen said you were ok, but that you did have a knot in the end of the cord. It could have been a bad thing, but God wanted you here, with us. We were so very happy. We named you after daddy's gramma. He loves her very much and has a lot of great memories of him growing up around her. Your middle name is after my gramma. I have a lot of beautiful memories about her when I was little.
You are such a smart little girl. You are so much fun to have around. You can be such a clown, and when you talk you use your hands and eyes to express yourself you are precious. Of course, there are times when you are a #1 brat! Like the other day when you cut Patricia's hair because you thought it was too long.
I will do my best to make you be a beautiful lady when you grow up. So there's going to be times when you won't like me, but I hope you will always love me and respect me. I will do anything I can for you whenever you need me. I enjoy everyday I spend with you. You are my special Teresa and I love you so very much. Keep smiling dear.
