"My Wish" To My Daughter...


Today is March 28th.
What a very special day it is!!!


Jordan, my special little girl, turns 13 years old today.



A teenager!
The moment she has been waiting for.
Somehow it isn't the moment I have been waiting for:-)


But the day is here and Jordie is a beautiful 13 year old girl...
and though it may be cliche...
she is truly beautiful inside and out!


I have thought and thought about this blog post.
Sometimes I do a "things I love about you" type of post.
I could still do that.

I could still say that I love so many things about Jordie.

I love..
her sweet smile,


her freckles,
her long blonde hair,


her perfect little ears,

I love...
her faith in God,
that she loves animals,


that she is a good friend,
her sense of humor


I love...
her bright mind,


her creativity,


how she stands up for herself...
and for others
I love...
her love of children,


her love of family,
her love of football:-)
I love...
how much she loves her mommy:-)
her opinions
her advice.


But there is so much more I want to say.
I know this is getting long but I'm not sorry this time.
This is for my girl Jordie and she will read every word.

So...
One of Jordie's favorite songs is
"My Wish", by Rascall Flatts.
She loves this song and knows
every word.

I love it too.

When I first heard it I printed the words for
both of my girls.
I do that often:-)


The song that has been playing in the background is My Wish.
Here are the lyrics.
Jordie, if I could write a song for you,
this is what it would say...

"My Wish"

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,


But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but you never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.


But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big


Jordie, This is also my wish to you on your 13th birthday.
I love you!!!
Mommy

  4. Oh my sweet Suzanne, I don't know when I have been as touched as I am reading this beautiful, poignant and loving birthday tribute to your precious Jordan. What a wonderful blessing. I suspect one of the reasons this touched me so deeply is my brother's little granddaughter Jordan age 11 was killed almost two years ago in a 4-wheeler accident. I made a memory book for them and had so many little beautiful pictures of their little brown-eyed, blonde haired angel. Cherish her each day. Love ya, Mollye
