Dearest Angel Girl,
I heard this song and thought of you. I remember when you were just a tiny baby and I was holding you. How little you were. I know you’ve gotten much taller, but I believe that hearing “I love you, precious one,” is something we all need to hear. No matter how big you get, I’ll always remember you smaller than me. I hug you in my dreams and I pray you are safe and feeling loved. If tears come into your eyes, remember that across the miles, I am holding you in my heart. Tonight, I prayed for you and imagined that my outstretched hands touched the crown of your head as I said the ancient words that protect and comfort children we love. This lullaby is for you, my angel girl. Enjoy!
Love, all the way to the Eiffel Tower and Back a Zillion Times Over,
Your Big Sister – Prudence Scattergoode XXOO
P.S. As the wordsmith in your family, you’ll most appreciate the name I gave myself.
