Happy Easter! I know you aren't thrilled with having to share your birthday with Easter this year. That's how April birthdays sometimes fall though. You took your disappointment and worked through it like a big kid. We're very proud of you for that.
You've grown up so much this year. You are such a compassionate little girl. You truly care about others who do not have all of the things you do and try to help how you can. You love for animals is also something that makes us so proud. You are so gentle with God's creatures and care for them.
Sometimes, life is tough. I'm proud of how you are learning to cope with life's difficulties and disappointments. You are finding healthy ways to work through them. Just always remember to be grateful for the things that you have.
You are such a smart little girl, as well. We are so proud of how well you are doing in school. Not just that, though. You love learning. You truly enjoy learning new things and exploring the world around you. Your passion for reading has grown this year and you have branched out to new genres of literature and found you enjoy so much more.
You have such a passion for all you do. You put forth effort into everything that you take part in, and it shows in all areas. You are developing skills that you can put to use throughout your life.
You are so very loved. I know that sometimes you don't feel that way because we are hard on you. We are hard on you because we love you so much. We see what an amazing person you are and we want to make sure you keep being that sweet and caring girl, regardless of the world around you.
Happy Birthday, my Sunshine. You truly make me happy when skies are grey. I love you more than words can say.
