Call this a prayer, or maybe a pledge; here are the things I want to do and the person I want to be for my daughter:
- Loving. Always loving.
- I never want to raise my voice to be heard or understood.
- I want to be 100% interested in what you're doing or saying right now.
- I am your biggest fan.
- I will admit mistakes.
- I will protect you from bad people.
- I will pray for you and the choices you make.
- I will love your mom until I die.
- I will ask you to do things you don't want to do in the interest of our family and/or your own future.
- I will blog and photo-document your life until I drive you completely crazy.
