Dear Piper ~ We had quite the scare this past weekend, didn’t we? I was terrified. I was terrified for how much pain you must have been in. I am so very thankful that you are okay. Despite the wounds on your hand and the bandage, you are just fine. Thank goodness.

Whenever you are hurt, I want to take the pain away. Immediately. I wish it were me and not you. It breaks my heart to see you hurting. How are we going to manage as you grow? I suspect that there will be many hurts that you will endure during your lifetime. Some physical and some emotional. How am I going to do this? As your mother, I want to protect you from all of the hurt that is out there in the real world… but I know that I cannot. It is part of growing up. Part of learning lessons. Part of gaining experiences. All I can do is hope that you come out okay, each and every time.

We had another great Christmas and you enjoyed all the snow fell. You love riding on Papa’s wheels and riding through the snow in the sled. These are things that Mama used to do when she was a little girl, and I loved doing them as well.
You are growing up and are such a pretty young girl. This is the last year that you will be home before you start Kindergarten and soon you will be turning 4! What an adventure this has been, don’t you think?
Mama wants you to know that you make us so very proud. Every day that I am your Mother, is the best day of my life.
I love you, Sweet Pea,
Love Mama.
