To my daughter

Reach out! Reach up!
Climb the highest height
Follow your dreams
Let hope give you wings
Be brave, be bold, be strong!

Look to a new day
A bright not a blue day
Stand straight, walk tall, be you
For you are unique, you burn so bright
You, the wonderful you!

  1. This was such an uplifting poem, I’m sure that your daughter appreciates having a mother like you who wants her to live her own dreams so much and encourages her to stand tall and be herself. This is good advice for every daughter. ❤

  2. What a cheery reminder that the best way to live is to embrace our true selves (I just argued with myself for 5 mins over true selfs vs true selves… we don’t do f into ves in Scots, 😂).
    Thanks for that wee boost to the spirit, Chris. P.S. You’re wonderful, too!
