The world we live in isn’t as sweet and innocent as you, although I wish it was. I don’t want the world to destroy your innocence. I don’t want your heart to be broken by the things happening around you. As your mother I want to protect you from all bad things. I want you to always be safe and cared for. I don’t want you to be scared, worried or sad. I wish I could keep you in a bubble forever because I know letting you out into the world you’ll see and hear things you wish you wouldn’t have. After reading about what happened in Paris my heart sunk. Innocent children died for no reason and as a mother that brought me to tears. I know it’s impossible to keep you away from all evil around but I wish I could. You have so much light and love and I want people to be changed by that. I used to worry all of the time about bad things that could happen but one day I read the saying “let go and let God”. Something I’ve read many times before but didn’t really think about what it meant. Once I did I realized that’s all I have to do. There is no possible way I can keep you away from everything bad in the world. I do my best to protect your eyes, ears and heart but ultimately I really do just have to let go and let God. I have faith that he is going to take care of you and also take care of Daddy and I as your parents. He’s going to teach us how to be the best parents we can be to you and help you along in this world. I still get worried sometimes because I always want you to be safe and protected but I have to leave it in God’s hands and just do the best that I can for you. I love you with all my heart.
