2: My BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER Kiera Being your mom has far exceeded my expectations, I was unaware of how much I would love my daughter! There was no rule book on how to be a good parent so when they placed you in my arms I felt so overwhelmed, so unprepared yet so overjoyed. I didn't know how to be your mom and your friend. I was unaware how I should help you through your fights with friends. I certainly was not prepared for your 1st love and the heartache that follows. All I knew was that I loved you more than words could say and that I would protect you at any cost. I would love to say everything just fell into place with us however we both know that would be a lie, what I can say is that I tried with all my might and nothing or no one will ever change the love I have for you. You are and extraordinary young women and I am honored that God choose me to say "I'm Kiera's mom"! Kiera you are smart and funny, confident yet humble, you are one of the most beautiful people I know inside and out and for that I will forever be grateful. As I reflect on your childhood I think of all the times we have shared together. All the bumps and bruises that I have kissed and cleaned and the silly things you guys would do like riding down the street screaming out of the windows just being silly. You know I'm not the most emotional person in the whole world but it saddens me to realize how much I'm going to miss our mother daughter time, Our late night talks (and yes 10 o'clock is late night. I knew this time would come and there was no way I could keep my outgoing Kiera home with me forever. As you leave home to go to college and begin your next phase of life, know that I will always love you. I have and always will be proud to be your mom. When you make mistakes remember the best part is getting up from that fall and learning from that mistake. I have no doubt that you will be successful however my prayer is not for your success but for your everlasting happiness. Always be mindful that the "Joy of the Lord is your strength". Whenever things get tough you have God's joy deep within and with God ALL things re possible. Use the wisdom God has blessed you with and nothing will ever be out of your reach. I look forward to being there as our relationship grows from mother and daughter to beloved friends. You make my heart so happy and I can't wait to see what your future holds!!!!

26: Our Deepest Fear Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some; it is in everyone. And, so we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
