A Letter From My Mother

8 years ago Mom gave me a letter. It was on the day that we went to see "Anne of Green Gables the musical" at Centerpointe Theater in Ottawa. The letter has meant alot to me over the past 8 years. I wanted to share some excerpts of the letter with you.

Dear Erin Sarah Deanna, April 30, 2003

I love you. I am thankful for the time here with you today at "Anne of Green Gables" More then the play - I am glad to be here with you! I can't think of another woman or girl I'd rather be here with.

I look so forward to our years together as your father and I teach and train you... "That our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace" (Psalm 144:12)

It will be very rewarding to learn with you as we train you in the ways of the Lord. "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God" (1 Cor. 3:19a)

May the Lord bless you and keep you my dear daughter. I love you. "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain - but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised".

Love, Mommy xoxoxo

You know I tend to be a little on the private side but I have to remember that this blog is about you and not me. You are a beautiful, lovely daughter. As you drove down the driveway today (heading to work in my little Honda) with your travel mug of "good for you tea" (remember she works at a health food store), I was reminded of how time goes by so quickly and I need to make the most of the days God gives me. You reminded me a bit of Nancy Drew just without the dark blue convertible and tan cotton suit. So I guess I will say good-bye "Anne" and hello growing up (too quickly) daughter. I know you thought your Daddy may give you a little Nancy Drew convertible for your 18th coming up but remember she was fiction and you my sweet girl are very real. Lots of love..
