Dear Anna

Let's start from the beginning.
I love you.
I always will.
No, always.
No matter what.
I will love you and love you.
It will embarrass you how much I love you.
It will make you roll your eyes and worry that your friends are watching.
I will love you enough that I hope you never have to seek the "wrong kind of love".

Love just to feel loved.
You have love
you have it here,
in this house,
in these arms,
with me
and your dad
and Cole
and even Mia.
You have love all over us and it is safe love.

It is the kind of love that will allow you to always be truthful.
You can tell us what is bothering you, what is making you nervous.
You can tell us when you have made a decision you are not proud of.
You can tell us when you are in trouble.
You can tell us when you are scared.
You can tell us the truth.
We will never walk away from you.
We will never take our love away,
never.
No matter what.

We will love you when you are being difficult.
We will love you through to the other side.
We will love you enough to teach you right from wrong.
We will love you enough to remind you that one day, we will not be watching, but you still have to be glorious you.
You still have to work, for you, not for us.
We will love you enough to allow you to go.
We will love you enough to teach you how to be on your own.

And, because all of that is difficult.
Because all of that is us parenting and you testing,
you will feel that it is not love.
Because there will be tears, for all of us.
There will be meltdowns, for all of us.
There will be yelling, from all of us.
There will be stubbornness, from all of us.
There will be mistakes, for all of us.
There will be breakdowns, for all of us.
But, we will always love you.

Throw your temper tantrums.
We will love you.
Stomp your feet.
We will love you.
Yell.
We will love you.
Scream,
cry,
throw yourself to the ground.
Test me.
Scream in my face kind of testing.
I will love you.

I will not walk away.
I will not change my mind.
You are safe.
We will see the other side of this together.
You are so loved.
You are so so loved.
The kind of love that you will understand someday.
Love that looks like this...
