My teenage daughter, my firstborn, the little girl I prayed for and have cherished for 16 years, my angel! My daughter, Alexandria is a Junior this year and with this, there is a lot of college talk and activities and it reminds me that she is only a few years away from starting her own life away from me. She is an amazing girl, who is smart, funny, talented and kind and makes me proud every day.
Because of the Yoplait® Go Big™ Yogurt contest over on Facebook, I was encouraged to write a letter to her to show her how she inspires me every day.
From the moment I found out that I was going to be your mom, I couldn’t wait to hold you in my arms. When the doctor handed you to me, I instantly fell in love with you. I have felt so much pleasure watching you grow into the beautiful young woman that stands before me.
Seeing how you embrace life brings me such joy and makes me hold on just a little tighter. You are always eager to try new things and your passion for learning is exhilarating. Right now, you are standing at the beginning of an amazing life you are making for yourself and I want you to know that you make me proud, with everything you do. Please, do not lose your passions, do not let the light in your eyes fade, leap forward and embrace the future as you have always done.
Don’t ever stop being you as you are going far in your life!
I love you, my Angel!
Thank you, Yoplait® Go Big™ Yogurt for inspiring this letter and thank you for the new larger pouches that are perfect for growing teens! My girl is in love with the Mixed Berry and it really fills her up at snack time!
