A Letter To Marina

Dear Marina,

I saw on Facebook today where someone had written these words:   "I believe that certain people come into your life for a reason, they change your life when you don't expect it."  

I didn't write those words but I wish I had because they make me think of you. 

A long time ago, I prayed God would give me a child, and 17 years ago, He did something better, He sent me an angel. 

He gave me you. 

I loved you before you were born, and when you came into this world 17 years ago today, the moment I first held you in my arms I realized that God had given me a wonderful gift...a beautiful treasure to watch over while here on earth.  

I love you beyond measure and I am so proud of you.

Thank you God, for giving me such a wonderful gift as Marina.

Happy Birthday Sissy.  I love you.
