10 years. My word, didn’t they go by in a blink. Who is this girl in front of me? I remember you screaming, barely 7 pounds and entering this world with authority. I knew it, the day you were born and I know it now, you, Cora Madison are a force to be reckoned with.
It’s an amazing thing to bring life into this world. At that moment you know, you will never do anything better, more meaningful or world changing.
Cora, to think, at 10, all the lives you’ve made better, and yet, there are so many more more lives for you to impact.
2 years ago I said to you, jokingly, “Cora, you’re like my best friend.” And you, ever so cooly, said, “I’m your only friend.” Now, I don’t know if you’re my only friend, but I have no doubt, you are my best friend. For we have a bond, that will be timeless and unbreakable.
Continue to be bold, honest, assertive and kind. You’ve only scratched the surface of the woman you will one day become.
