Love Letter to My Daughter

While I was pregnant I often wondered what kind of mother I would be and the thought of having a daughter, at times, scared me. I questioned my anxiety and quickly came to the understanding and truth that having a girl scared me because I was a daughter who was relentlessly trying to find herself. I hope to provide you with all my learnings so that I may guide you towards a path of acceptance, love and freedom.

Like many other mothers, I am sure, there are times that I stare at you and wonder if I will unknowingly make any damaging mistakes.  I don’t want this fear to complicate my role as a mother. I am not seeking for perfection but just a chance to raise a girl into a woman who is independent, confident in herself and lives with so much love and passion.

Dear sweet Savannah Rose,

I wish you could see yourself through my eyes and only then would you truly know how much I adore you.  Thank you for choosing me to be your mother and for granting me the special gift of raising you.   Coming into my life you instantly showed me what unconditional love feels like.  Being a mother to you is effortless and you make each passing day more and more bright.

You came without instructions and there are times when I reflect on how I am doing as your mother.  Always know that everything I say and do is because I love and care for you. As much as I am here to teach you, you are also here to teach me.  They say the role of a parent is to teach their children all about life. I have come to understand that children are here to teach parents what life is truly all about. Savannah, I have learnt so much from you already in such a short time.  The most astonishing thing for me is that I have learnt so much about ME since you have been born.

I am proud of so many things in my life but nothing beats being a mother to you. I am amazed by your sensitivity and pure heart. Your understanding and happiness. Your beauty truly runs deeper than the eye. The joy that consumes every cell of your body is unbelievable and your energy is absolutely contagious. You have taught me to laugh often because life is too short not to enjoy every moment of it. The day I had you was the day I began to heal my inner child. The day I began to look at life through a different lens. You make me a better person – someone who strives to live life each day with an open heart, with more understanding, with more acceptance of myself, with more awareness, with more happiness and with more love.

Always know that I am here for you without judgement and only with love. I accept every part of you and always, always, always know how very proud I am of you.

You can come to me for anything and know that there will never be judgement.  I am here to love and support you always. As your mother my role is to provide you with the qualities you will need in the big world.  Keep your heart wide open.  There is goodness all around you, you just have to look.  When you feel small in this big world just be still.  Find your centre, it will lead you to calmness and this is where all answers are found. Trust your gut and intuition – I promise you, it will never lead you in the wrong direction. Love yourself FIRST before anyone or anything. Be kind to yourself and know that the most important person in this world is YOU. Take care of YOU so you can then extend some of your loving energy outward.

From the moment you were born, you sparkled from the inside. Don’t ever let anyone dull that sparkle. Surround yourself with positive people who care, love, support and inspire you and push away from those that are toxic and negative.  In life, you will come across those people who will try with all their might to make you feel small or to make you believe you cannot do it. You CAN do it and can be anything you desire if you just fiercely believe in yourself.  I will always be your cheerleader and #1 fan.

I know the time will come when the pages of my life end but I know that you will be one of its most beautiful chapters. For this I am forever grateful.

Love mommy


A Letter to My Daughter and Life Lessons for Her to Follow

My Dearest Little Love,

You are growing up before my eyes, and it fills me with wonder and joy, sadness, and fear. I marvel at what a beautiful and kind little person you are becoming! Your smile and your bubbly energy can lighten the mood of a room in an instant. But I am also afraid of what this world will do to you as you journey further into it and away from my protective arms. How does a mother let her daughter spread her wings in the world as it is today?

Sweet girl, you are so strong and brave. But this world is hard, and it can be filled with dark and scary things. I want you to remember these five things as you grow and start pulling farther from me. If you can remember these things, I know you will be okay.

Be kind and generous.

As you grow, you will see that many people in this world are not kind and that many more are selfish. I want you to be different, love. You have inherited your Daddy’s kind and generous heart, and I want you to embrace it! I want you to spread kindness like wildfire, just like your Daddy did his whole life. You are his legacy, and you should be proud to be so much like him.

Love deeply, and let yourself be loved.

One day you will decide that boys are kinda cool. You’ll begin to think about them and dream about marrying one someday. Dream away, baby! Here’s the thing, though: I want you to remember that love is worth it when it’s real, but love is not the same thing as affection, gifts, or other romantic movie stuff. Love is sacrifice and hard work. Love is being more concerned about the wellbeing of your other half than you are for your own. It also means sometimes having your heart broken, and that’s okay too. Broken hearts heal, and loving deeply and truly is worth it. I want you to fall in love and fall hard, but also let yourself—your true self—be loved deeply in return. Don’t hold back when you find your love, sweetheart. Love is always worth the risk.

Trust God, and trust your instincts.

I hope that I can instill in you a deep sense of faith. Our God is a loving and trustworthy God. He has a plan and a purpose for your life that is more beautiful than even I can imagine. Learn to talk to Him daily, put your faith in Him alone, and trust Him with all things. He will never fail you. And He will give you the instincts and discernment you need to make hard choices and face hard things in this life. You will never fall when you lean into Him.

You are worthy of all good things.

Never, ever, ever, ever settle for second best. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you are not worthy. You are smart, talented, kind, beautiful, and capable of doing anything you set your mind to. You should chase after the best of everything and expect that it can be yours because you are worth everything good.

Don’t be afraid to fight.

I hope I can be an example of a good fighter for you. I have fought all of my life for myself and others. And I want you to be that person too. If you see injustice or inequality or corruption, I want you to be brave and bold enough to fight against it. When you know that someone is doing wrong, please stand up, tell the world about it, and then do your best to fight against it. You may not win every battle because sometimes this world favors greed over good, but it doesn’t matter. Fight anyway. Be the light and the voice and the advocate for good in this world. Fighting for what is right is always the right choice.

Baby, you are the joy of my life, and I hope that I can teach you all of these things before you face the world on your own. I am so blessed to get to love you and be your mama. The world is better for having you in it, my love. Never forget that you are a treasure and a gift and that you have been called to be a light in this world.

I love you, my girl.

If there is one gift that never goes out of style, it is the gift of heartfelt words in the shape of a letter. Letters are such a personal gift and you should only give them to people who really mean a lot to you.

Even if you don’t like writing letters, it’s still worth a try. It is much more personal and soulful than any gift that money can buy. So if your daughter is about to celebrate a special occasion — a birthday, a wedding, or the birth of your grandson — give her a piece of your heart by writing her a heartfelt letter saying how much you love her.

Below are examples of letters you can write to your daughter.

1. To my dear daughter. When you get older, I want you to be free to fly like a bird. Go there and chase your dreams. Let nothing stop you. Live life to the fullest and be sure that you will find happiness in everything you do. And when you risk making a name for yourself in this world, just know that I am always here for you. All you have to do is give me a call and I’ll be there for you — at the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. You will always be my baby and I will always be there when you need me.

2. In your youth you were always a premature little child. You have seen the world with such curiosity and wonder and I only hope that your view of the world will never change. See each day as a learning experience. Experience every moment to the fullest. Love freely and completely, but also keep some of that love for yourself. And at the end of the day, when you are tired and weary, know that I will always be there for you to guide and help you. You bring me so much joy in this life and I can only hope to help you find the same joy.

3. A mother’s love for her child is unlike anything else in the world. Knows neither the law nor pity. I dare at all and ruthlessly destroy everything that stands in this way. My dear daughter, in this life you will face challenges that you have never faced before. It won’t always be an easy road, and yet, I want you to have the strength and resilience to face them all. I can only hope that when you were still young under my wing, I taught you everything you needed to know in order to live. And in your travels, no matter how far you go, remember that I will always be in the place you call home. When you’re tired of what life has thrown at you, it’s me, your mother, who you can count on to help you get back on your feet. I love you.

4. Every time I see you, whether in person or at your posts, I can’t help but wonder how you’ve grown to be so strong and so beautiful. You used to be a small little child who could barely crawl and talk, but now I look at you — so graceful and elegant as an adult. While the world may see you as a strong, independent woman, remember that I have seen you grow up to be who you are today. You surprised me with your wisdom, even at a young age. And now that you’ve all grown up, I can’t help but be proud of you in so many ways. You spread your wings and flew, my love. I love you and want you to know that I have always had and always will.

5. When you entered my life, I must admit that I met you with a mixture of joy and anxiety. You were such a little bundle of joy that I didn’t know what to do with myself if I wasn’t good enough for you. But as you grew up, you showed me what it really means to be a parent. You showed me what love really is. On your birthday, not only a child was born, but also a parent who will fight tooth and nail to bring you a better life. I can’t tell you how much of my heart you fill. I can’t tell you how proud I am of you. You were an incredible little miracle who grew up to be a wonderful young woman. I love you so much!

6. I still remember the elation when I felt that you were joining our family. I couldn’t believe that I would be blessed with such a beautiful girl. The day you were born, I couldn’t help but cry tears of joy. I felt like my heart was overflowing with so much love. You were such a wonderful little child — curious and smart, demanding and strong. You wanted peace and I wanted to give it to you. You were so sweet, and even more so now that you are all grown up. I just want you to know that from the moment you were created to the time you are reading this letter, I have loved you every step of the way. You will always be my baby, my beautiful little miracle, the light of my life.

7. My dear daughter, when you go out into the world, I want to share with you the wisdom that I believe you will need on your journey. No doubt I know you are smart and quick-witted, but I just thought I’d share with you some of the lessons I learned in my life when I was your age. First, love freely, but love yourself above all else. You can find boys who promise to give you the world but always know that you can be as capable as they are. Don’t rely on anyone but your own mind to get what you want in this world. Second, use the gifts you have been given. Treat your body with respect and never settle for second place. You are the greatest gift to me and I want you to know that you deserve only the best. And finally, when times get tough and you want to get some rest, you can always come to my house. You will be safe and cared for, as always when you were a child. I love you and wish you all the best in your life journey.

8. When you were born, next to happiness, I experienced a feeling of fear. With all the bad things going on in this world, I was worried about how I can protect you from all of this. Like a helpless little child, I did everything I could to make sure you have everything you need. But I knew that one day you would grow up and want to explore that dangerous world from which I wanted to protect you. Since you are making a name for yourself in this world, I hope you are happy. I hope you find the path that will lead you to success and happiness. And since you are living your dreams, know that I am always there for you when you need me.

9. No words can describe how much you mean to me, my daughter. You are and always will be the greatest gift I have ever received in this life. I admit that I was strict with you when you were little, but it was all because of my fear that the world might harm you. Over time, I realized that I could not protect you from everything, and you soon grew up to learn how to protect yourself in this dangerous world. And I’m so proud of how smart and strong you are. My baby, I want you to know that no one in this world can love you like I do. I want the best from you and I want you to be the best you can be. I love you with all my heart, my dear daughter.

10. To my daughter, who is now a mother. I want you to know that being a mother is incredibly difficult, not because taking care of a child is difficult, but because of the constant fear that something might hurt your little girl. When you were little, I knew that I had to put all my energy into making sure you were always okay. And now you know what it’s like. When you are raising your own girl, I want you to know that your mom is always there for you. I will always be here to guide you and give you advice when you need it. I will always welcome you with open arms when you need help raising a child because I understand how difficult it can be. My dear daughter, I know you will be a great mother because we just have to admit that you have learned from the best!

Bring a smile (and maybe some tears) to your daughter’s eyes on her special day by writing her one of these letters. Of all the gifts she will receive, a heartfelt letter is one that she will cherish for the rest of her life!

Letter to daughter. “My father refused to take part in the war”

Letter to his daughter. “My father refused to participate in the war”

October 24, 2018, 15:22 Views: 673

On the centenary of the end of the First World War, the heroes of battles and battles are usually in the spotlight. But not everyone was ready to fight with weapons in their hands.

The brutal treatment of people who refused military service for reasons of conscience is described in a poignant letter that has come down to us from those distant times. The letter was presented to Glasgow Caledonian University ( Glasgow Caledonian University, GCU ). Thousands of letters were sent home from the front lines, but the one in question was sent by a Scot to his newborn daughter from a labor camp in Argyll in the west. Scotland.

Harsh conditions

Robert Climey wrote a letter to his little daughter Cathy in November 1917. Then no one could have thought that before the end of the Great War, as the First World War was then called, there was less than a year left.

World War I (July 28, 1914 — November 11, 1918) is one of the largest armed conflicts in human history. This war, which forced millions of people to leave their homes and go to the battlefield, put the idealist Robert Climey through Her Majesty’s prison Wormwood Scrubs (Men’s B prison) , Her Majesty’s Prison Wakefield (Men’s A prison) and Labor Camp in Argyle area.

As we approach the centenary of the end of the First World War, this letter is now available for review at the Caledonian University of Glasgow.

A letter from Robert, a simple postal worker from Kilmarnock in east Ayrshire, reveals the history of the peace movement in Scotland and the plight of some 1,400 conscientious objectors at the time.

Robert Climey was a socialist and a member of the No-Conscription Fellowship (NCF) , a pacifist organization that encouraged men to refuse military service. The organization had broad public support in Scotland.

The son of a prominent trade union leader and one of the pioneers of the ILP — Independent Labor Party (English — Independent Labor Party , ILP ) he was strongly opposed to the Great War.

In 1916, when military service was introduced and all fit men between the ages of 18 and 40 were subject to conscription, Robert exercised his right to conscientious objection to military service.

Arrest and trial

Claimy was to be court-martialed and persuaded to grant him a release from service so that he could continue working at the post office. However, one of the members of the tribunal, a retired army officer, did everything in his power to prevent a fair decision, and he succeeded. In January 1917, Robert Claimy was arrested and sent to prison Wormwood Scrubs in west London. He was later transferred to prison Wakefield in West Yorkshire, and in the spring to a labor camp at Croachan in Argyll.

He was one of a dozen conscientious objectors sent to Cruachan in Loch O. Conditions in the camp were harsh. He stayed there for almost a year.

It was from there that he wrote a letter to his little Kathy, with whom he spent only the first few months of her life. This letter was related to the baby’s first birthday, and he really wanted that later, when she grew up, she would correctly understand his decision.

Robert married Kathy’s mother, whom he had been in love with since childhood, a year after the war began. Both of them were activists in the labor movement, the Labor movement and helped organize socialist Sunday schools for children.

Robert Duncan, an author and historian at the Caledonian University of Glasgow, explained that in those days, citizens who refused to serve were tried by military courts and were usually sentenced to imprisonment or forced labor for their position.

“People of Principle”

He said: “At that time, there were very widespread misconceptions in society about those who refused military service for reasons of conscience. The prevailing opinion was that they are idlers and cowards, people who do not have courage, courage, and for this they are worthy of contempt. But the facts say otherwise. The refusers were people of principle, who knew what they were getting into, and were ready to accept suffering for their choice.”

A heartfelt letter from a father to his young daughter, with whom he was separated by hundreds of miles, was presented to the university by the family of Robert Climey. It is being shown now to tell about the plight of the objectors.

Archivist Carol McCallum believes that this story reveals another aspect of the war, namely the side of it that touched the lives of many families. «I couldn’t hold back my tears while reading this letter,» she said.

“A lot of stories from the archive should be made available to the public. After all, the archive is just the history of people. Robert’s story stands out from the crowd, and I decided that we really need to tell the story of conscientious objection in a different way, and, quite possibly, this will be a revelation for many ordinary people.

Touching and profound

She added: “People might say, ‘Damn it! But I never thought about it. I never thought about a mother who was left without any social protection or without someone to help her raise and raise a child. I never thought about a child who grew up without a father punished for his beliefs.

Robert Climey’s carefully chosen words to his beloved daughter are a touching and wise reminder that not all heroes are bound to appear on the battlefield.
