The Icing on the Cake!

Birthday note to my daughter.

Kimani Lee —

It is amazing to see how much you and I have both grown in these past two years. You went from crawling to walking, to running and jumping, from baby cooing to formulating complete sentences. I have taken complete pride and joy in watching you grow.

I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world. God knew you were exactly what I needed.

Becoming your mother turned me into a real woman. So long are the days of “winging it” because I know you are here depending on me. You are my priority and never will I jeopardize our stability. You motivate me to work harder, so that I can afford to give you the finer things in life — much like my mother did for me.

With you as my motivation, I went from being a jobless new mom to working full-time and within less than a year granted a major promotion. I am positive that we will continue to see an increase in our home because I thoroughly believe that there is no limit to what God can do.

Honestly, I know this isn’t all me. This is God’s work. And seeing you smile today is the icing on the cake.

Cheers to being TWO!!! I love you.

– Mom
