Well, it was more of an assignment for me as she wraps up her senior year in high school and prepares to head off to college.
I'm writing this not to let you know how much I love you, and I do. Not to tell you how proud you've made me and how talented you are.
Not even to gush about how bright, intelligent and funny you are. Or how adept you are at braiding your little sister's hair. You are all those things, and more. I'm writing you to let you know that I understand. I understand the changes you're experiencing. The feeling that you're walking around in somebody else's body.
I have the diaries to prove it. I understand the challenges you're facing. School, friends, feelings, stuff. I understand some, not all, but some of the frustrations you feel.
Because sometimes you seem frustrated all the time and I don't get that.
I understand you will need me less and less with each passing day. It breaks my heart a little. But that's life, right? I understand that sharing a bedroom sucks. And that little brothers are annoying. Totally with you on that one. I understand that you are growing up much too fast. And that parents are so embarrassing.
I mean, God forbid I hug you or kiss you or hold your hand in public. I understand the pressure you feel to be accepted. Man, do I understand that. I understand that you are waging an inner battle between girl and young woman -- not quite one or the other -- happily accepting more responsibility and yearning for independence while still silently craving your mama's hugs.
But I also need you to try to understand where I'm coming from. Understand that I am always in your corner; that I will be your cheerleader, your strongest supporter, your safety net, your shoulder to cry on.
Understand that I love you unconditionally. I will not, however, let you take that love for granted.
I am, after all, a person with feelings, feelings you sometimes disregard as you wallow in your tween angst.There is another way to meet those three needs of our children something lasting and tangible a letter.
