It’s a birthday!!!
Okay, so I already sent a letter and a present, but, like, is there ever such as thing as giving too much love? If there is, I haven’t found it. Soooo here we go! A little extra Part 2 of Sawyer’s birthday letter!
Happy birthday, my love! You stunning human with one of the biggest and most caring hearts. I can never tell you enough how much I adore you, but I really do. You’re one of the first people I ever considered another little sister, and I was so happy to call family, really. There’s that saying that says blood is thicker than water, but they conveniently leave out the whole thing which is that “the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb” and idk man, but I feel like that’s something really important to remember. That you can find family that isn’t blood related, but they are still so so important to you. And that’s you.
And guess what? When I meet you (because gosh damn it you better believe I’m coming to visit you real soon), you’re gonna get all the hugs and forehead kisses and cuddles. I’ll get to listen to you play and play a song with you too. We’ll watch Criminal Minds and jam out to music or maybe even watch a musical. I’ll get to spend time with one of my favorite people ever and tell you how much you mean to me. And even when I have to leave, I’ll be able to remind you that “hey. I met you in person. I already knew how amazing you were, but now you can’t fight me on this.”
But this is a birthday post, so I’ll finish it off by saying I said a lot of what i wanted to say in that letter, but I’ll repeat this:
I am so so proud of you, and I look forward to seeing you continue to grow as a person. I have every ounce of confidence in that you will be someone who does something good. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture because every little thing counts. You are so wonderful, my dear Sawyer. Happy birthday. Kick this year’s butt. You’ve got this. I love you.
Oh! And here’s a a gif of a baby goat with a plushie goat!
