"My Little Bear,
What a gloomy summer us sun seekers have had with all the rain. I am thankful for the little sunshine we had, and that I had you to bask in it with me at the pool. I am also thankful for the moments of running through puddles, dancing in the raindrops, snuggling while reading, cooking, coloring....that have filled our days.
I am thankful that you are a bright ray of sunshine in my life, with your hugs and kisses and the enthusiasm to try new things. You are ever impatient and always ready to venture off into the unknown and embrace what life has for you and I love this about you. You are growing up much too quickly, for I would love to keep you little forever, but time will not stand still and I must let you bloom into who you were created to be, despite my hesitation.
No matter how old you are remember that I love you forever and always you will always be my Little Bear.
