My wee Annie…
You; right there in the middle. Maybe a position you will point the finger at in later years, but, in the here and now…just perfect.
Energetic, enthusiastic and gorgeous, you live up to your name: both loveable and beautiful.
I love how you have an effortless beauty, a charm that is not based on what other people think and an independence that rocks me just a little….while your sisters wave that one last time, you stride ahead, always looking forward. And while that is not always easy for my, at times fragile heart, I know it is a certainty of spirit and character that will stand you in good stead. For you, Annabelle, are brave and courageous while being thoughtful and kind – a rare but lovely thing.
And I pray as you grow, that that strength you so innately have, will be used and channelled to bless those around you. That you will become a woman of grace and strength, of courage and beauty.
I have no doubts.
Always keep that effervescence and joyful spirit, they are hard to learn but precious to have. Guard them and protect them and always put them before you to help and encourage others.
I love you, our wee Ann….you are one in a million. Our wee bundle of loveliness.
A little piece of my heart out there always,
Love always, always, always…your mum xx
