Letter to Alexis Caroline

July 4, 2017

Hi sweetheart,

I am writing this letter to tell you how my heart feels about you. One of the greatest gifts of my life has been to watch you grow. From the first moment I saw you my heart has never been the same. To be a daddy is a beautiful gift in life, but to be a daddy of a beautiful little girl is heavenly. The divine gifts that you brought with you will change the world. You are a kind, compassionate, loving, peaceful, powerful, beautiful light. Shine your beautifully unique light wherever you go and whatever you do in life.

Live your life in this moment. Time is an illusion. History does not exist and the future will take care of itself, but to live now, in this moment, is where life holds its true meaning. Live all your dreams, ideas, desires and purpose. Do exactly what you want to do in life. Listen to your inner knowing, your intuition, it is the essence of who you are. Your knowing will guide you to infinite possibilities and opportunities in life.

You are a child of creation. Enjoy the beauty of each sunrise, the magnificence of each sunset and the thrills of life that will come between them. See the world, dance in the rain, sing from the mountaintops, swim in the oceans of the world, learn of other cultures, languages and people and celebrate each day that existence is a beautiful gift and you are here to love and experience it all.

Always remember that you CAN’T mess life up. In those moments when you feel like a failure or have disappointments, let it all pass from you like the wake from the back of a sailboat. Disappointments, pain, frustration will pass behind you beautifully and peacefully if you simply “let it go”…. remember that’s our song from the movie “Frozen”.

I love this little poem…

Never trust a mirror,
For a mirror always lies,
It makes you think that all your worth,
Can be seen from the outside.
Never trust a mirror,
It only shows you what ‘s skin deep,
You can’t see how your eyelids flutter,
When you are drifting off to sleep,
It doesn’t show you what the world sees,
When you are being you,
Or how your eyes just light up,
When you are loving what you do,
It doesn’t capture when you are smiling,
Where no one else can see,
And your reflection cannot tell you,
Everything you mean to me,
Never trust a mirror,
For it only show your skin,
And if you think that it dictates your worth,
It is time you looked within. ~E.H.

Well sweetness I am sure you have other things to do besides read a silly letter from your dad. I really just wanted to tell you that I love you, you make my heart dance, you take my breath away, and you make me so proud. I am forever grateful you chose me to be your daddy.

I love you Miss Alexis Caroline.

Love your dad.
