To my niece,
Words could never express how much I love and care about you. I have had the privilege of watching you grow from an infant to a beautiful 15 year old young lady. We have had some truly rememberable moments. People who have never met you, know all about you. You were and will always be my first “baby”. So, I guess you can say that I talk about you a lot. You are going through things that no 15 year old should have to endure. However, I know without a doubt that you are strong and able to get through this situation. If I could be in your place, I would. I wanted to rescue you from the situation. I tried, I did what I felt God wanted us to do. For some unknown reason, it did not work out. However, God has a plan. His plans are greater than mine. He is ultimately in control. Even though we do not understand at this time, I will continue to say “Thy will be done”. (By the way, the Hillary Scott song “Thy will” is a good song.) I will always be here for you. Regardless of the end result, remember that you are beautiful, you are loved, and you are special. No one has the authority to tell you that you are anything other than a princess. People like to talk…especially in a small town. So it is up to you to remind yourself that you are a princess, your father is the King of kings. I may not be able to physically hold you, but I LOVE YOU. Do NOT let anyone ever tell you any differently. Smile, keep your head up, and fight. Fight like your aunt Amy would. 🙂
Your Aunt Amy!
