My Dearest Abigail,
What is a mother's heart to say to you today?
You are amazing and it is an honor to be your mother. I am humbled by your life and your mind and your heart. You are teaching me ever so much.
I so prided myself before you came, and sometimes still do, on knowing people, and managing children. Believing that I had so much to offer to you, and as your mother I do have much to teach and train you in, I had know idea of all that you would reveal of my lack, of my heart--the parts still in process.
You are iron, My Girl, and I am grateful for our sharpening together.
I love you.
