Promise me you won't hurt yourself.
Because you are more precious to me that anything I can imagine. Because it was you, my sweet one, that taught me to grow out of myself and become something new. It was you, in those early days, who stridently, gently, insistently invited me to let go of myself and consider, for the first time, someone else. It was a painful transition, from me to you. But oh, how rich and full of joy this journey has been so far.
Know that I love you unconditionally. Know that I pray for you every day. Know that in Christ, you are beautiful.
