70: Dear Megan, I want you to know that you are a very important part of our family. Ever since you were a baby you paid attention to how others were feeling. You still show such compassion to others. It melts my heart, that is a gift from Heavenly Father. You remind me every day how much you love me with a kiss and a hug and by telling me. It makes me feel so good and I hope you know that I love you too. It has been such a fun year to watch you grow and learn. You started school and just bloomed! You made new friends and showed Mrs. Donovan you were a smarty pants. I loved it. Keep working hard at everything you do and you will have success. I'm proud of you Meg and I love you. love, Mom
