When you wake up, you will be 7. Somehow 7 seems so… Old. Like yesterday when you woke up you were still a baby, and early this morning when I peeked in on you you weren’t a baby. You were seven.
And I’m not ready. I say that every year, don’t I? As if my readiness was somehow a permission necessary for you to age another 365 days. But it’s not my permission you seek, and it’s not my permission that you’ll ever need. It’s my support, my understanding and, most importantly, my love. And that you always have. We may not always be best friends, we may not always see eye-to-eye. But you will always ALWAYS have my love. So on this morning when you wake up and your age reads 7 instead of 6, and I hold your hand a little longer than you want and I hug you a little harder than you expected, it’s only because I love you, and you saved me.
Each year I get to watch you grow and learn and change and age, is another reminder that miracles exist. Happy birthday, Addie.
