I Promise

Dear Lael,

I promise to teach you to be the best person you can be.

I promise to never put you in a situation that you are too young to deal with.

I promise that I will always offer a shoulder for you to cry on.

I promise that I will do what I can to prevent as many tears as possible.

I promise that you will lose some friends in life but gain the ones that really count.

I promise that I will raise you to be a strong, confident, smart woman.

I promise that you will have bad experiences but the good ones will outweigh them.

I promise that I will always correct you and tell you when you are wrong.

I promise I will always be honest with you, no matter how much it may hurt.

I promise that I will teach you how to forgive and accept apologies.

I promise that I will teach you how to ASK for forgiveness and give apologies.

I promise you that soon you will forget what happened to you today....

But I will not and I PROMISE it won't happen again.

With more love than you will ever know,
