Hopes for My Daughter

Last week we took our first official family vacation. Yahooooo! It took us about 7 hours each way to drive from Atlanta to Orlando since we had to stop a few times to change and feed Paige. And since I'm not able to really sleep in the car, I had a lot of time to think. 14 hours to be exact. And the thought that kept popping up in my mind was how truly blessed I am to have the family and friends that I do. I'm especially blessed to have my little angel Paige, and to be able to experience all the joys of being her Mommy. I mentally put together a list of the qualities I hope to instill in little Paige over the next 18 years as she grows from tiny baby to young woman.. Here is that list...

I hope that my daughter is:
  • Joyful - Filled with overwhelming joy that radiates from her pores
  • Aware - Aware of herself and the beautiful person that she is inside and out, but also aware of the world around her
  • Fearless - Unwilling to let the unknown hold her back from pursuing her hopes and dreams
  • Passionate - Going after life with gusto, whatever her passions may be
  • Kind - Putting the love and kindness into the world that she would like to receive in return
  • Knowledgeable - Not in the book-smart kind of way necessarily, but rather filled with the knowledge that she is loved unconditionally by her family and by God - and that she is perfect just the way she is!

Post your "Dreams for my Child" list to Facebook!!
