A real, raw, and uncut entry from my journal. A love letter to the little girl in me.
"Dear Lil T,
I'm so proud of you, girl... you would prob be so proud of me too haha -- well us! But huge s/o to you for keeping me safe for tapping me on the shoulder, and for helping me remember the dreams that we dreamed so long ago. The ones we love to chat about and the ones nobody else will ever know. Thank you for reminding me that it's the innocence + pure heart of the inner child that me so close to God and that the princess in me is something that I never have to let go of because for as long as I live I will always be the daughter of a King. Thank you for coming back to comfort me and reminding us how far we've come along + the journey we walked thus far. For teaching me to be free. For reminding me that I'm called, and there's nothing I could do about it + for teaching me to BE ME. There's something special I can learn from you, lil T, and that's just to BE to live in the presence of childlike faith. To fall into the ball pit again. To dream. To be okay w/NOT knowing and to simply live as if someone else is taking care of me because no matter how old you get... someone IS because YOU ARE the daughter of a king. I pray you never forget, and when you do, remember those little whispers in your heart like God's sweetest lullaby to his lil girl or like your daddy reading you a bedtime story. You're going to do so many great things. Thank you, Lil T, for inspiring me to BE ME. I promise to make you proud.
Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matt 18:4)
