You have made your grand entrance into this world three years ago. A world where I have tried my best to shield you from every evil way possible. Our journey together was far from the ideal one. It has made tread on humbling places, at the same time, learning strong on how to become a stronger mother for you. It was one heck of a fight.
One of the wisdom that was personally shared to me at that time which I still hold close to my heart was, “We make mistakes. It’s us. But God doesn’t make mistakes.” Over and over I was reminded how blessed I was to be carrying you on my womb. You were an active baby in my belly, too. You have always made me remember your presence by your little nudges. It was cute.
Esther, I have told you secrets you don’t understand. But you have assured me that you do by how you are responding. It amazes me how you try to protect me when I should be the one protecting you. I named you Esther because like Queen Esther, I hope and pray that you will be blessed with strength and courage and be found favorable by your Creator.
You are such a bright child. You bring light, love, and happiness in the room. All of a sudden, it seemed like the pain and hardships from the past decided to evaporate in the air. You must have helped me disremember the past, that you are here, so full of life!
Esther, you are a strong girl with a touch of sweetness in you. I smile at the glance of you. Please know that we will continue to journey this life together and you will continue to do amazing things! I am very thankful for the past three years and the years to come. I could never imagine our life without you. I actually tried, me and your big sister thought how it is dull.
Happy birthday! You are all worth it. Truly.
I love you.
