My eldest daughter is graduating from 6th grade this June. She and her batchmates recently had a recollection in preparation for their graduation. Their parents were requested to write letters to their children and then the kids will reply back.
Below is my letter to my daughter on her recollection day at school.
Dear Ms. Bookworm,
- You are beautiful. Just always wear a smile and you’re all set!
- You are smart. Carry on being Trivia Queen, dad just needs to train you on street knowledge.
- You are kind. And, when others are mean – continue to be kind to them.
- You are loved. Your family love you unconditionally.
- Love yourself. Accept your flaws and celebrate your individuality.
- Read more books that you did last year. But, read more non-fiction books now that you are older.
- Don’t compare yourself to others. Someone will always be better or worst than you.
- Continue to dream. Dream for a better future for yourself and for your generation.
- The world is your oyster. You can do anything as long as you have the knowledge and determination.
- Fail forward. When you encounter a roadblock, come up with alternatives and start again.
- Be a (wo)man for others. Serve others selflessly.
- You are a blessing to your family. God bless your father and me when He gave you to us.
