As you are about to enter your last month of High School and go to college, we want you to know how proud we are of you. From the day your were born, you have been our “Bug Girl.” Dad fell in love with you from Day 1-even though he wouldn’t admit it 😃 He went from “not knowing what to do with a girl” to teaching you everything he thought you should know how to do. Hours were spent in the yard with a football, and you quickly learned how to throw and catch it. You were “pretty good” dad would say. As if football wasn’t enough you played basketball, went fishing, and did other stuff as any “tough kid” would do.
You were also our glamour girl. At age 2, you decided that a shirt was much better to buy than a toy.
From then on, we knew your clothing addiction was going to be tough. But we were overjoyed when you discovered the Clearance Rack , and we heard the words, “I can get 5 Shirts for the price of 1.” We had never seen someone so excited about a $3 shirt. The excitement you have about the “little things” is one of our favorite things about you.
So as you are about to enter this next phase of your life, we want you to take your excitement about life, your accomplishments, your tenacity, your ambition, and your strong will with you. But, along with that, we want you to take your heartaches, your struggles, your lessons learned, and your hardest challenges with you as well.
It is all of those things- the good and the bad- that have made you who you are. You are the girl who is stronger than she ever thought she could be. You are the girl who can take on whatever comes her way. ALWAYS Be As Proud Of Yourself as We are of you. You are Strong and Beautiful ! You have only the world to gain.
