Perfect 10

If I had a time machine, I would go back to my almost 25-year-old self and tell her what you are like today on your 10th birthday. It would make her smile in amazement, I’m sure.

I’d tell her that you have brought me more joy in 10 years than I thought I’d ever get to experience in a lifetime.

I’d tell her that you and I are absolutely best friends just like she had wished for.

I’d tell her we’re closer than she even dreamed was possible.

I’d tell her that you have the most luxurious chocolate-brown hair, a smile that lights up a room and milk chocolate eyes that reflect your beautiful soul.

I’d tell her that you have an amazing sense of humor and make us laugh constantly.

I’d tell her that you tell me every day how much you love me and that I’m beautiful.

I’d tell her that you are infatuated with Mickey Mouse and Justin Bieber and your ipad and books.

I’d tell her that you laugh so hard you almost can’t catch your breath at Shel Silverstein poems, American’s Funniest Videos, your Dad and your brothers.

I’d tell her that everyone who meets you fall in love with you immediately.

I’d tell her that you have so many friends and that your BFFs are some of the nicest human beings I’ve ever known.

I’d tell her that even though right now she’s completely overwhelmed and devastated, that one day, 10 years later, all she’d feel is love. Love for the most perfect girl she could have ever dreamed of.

My perfect 10….you, Olivia, you.

Happy 10th Birthday Angel…I love you more than you’ll ever know.
