Dear Tessa,

Today you turn 13 years old, it’s hard to believe. It seems like yesterday I was at the hospital hearing the words she’s here and she’s healthy.

I am constantly amazed by you, your humor, your thoughtfulness, your intelligence and your capacity for love.

I love that we share a deep love of superheroes, Star Wars, America and Jesus.

I never take it for granted that you want to spend time with me. I feel blessed, I know there will come a day when hanging out with Gigi will not be cool. You’ll want to be with your friends, I accept that and will soak this in as much as possible now.

I pray your 13th year will be filled with adventure, laughter, love and a few obstacles you can learn from.

I love you so much Tess, always know I’ll be here when you need me.
