Zoe's Note to Maya

I mentioned in the birthday post that Zoe had written a note to Maya for her birthday.  Zoe wants me to share it on the blog, and it's so sweet I can't resist!
Dear Maya,

Today is your birthday; now you are 7 years old!  I have a present for you.  It is too small to see and too big to hold.  (Answer:  L-O-V-E)

You're the best and only sister I ever had.  Sometimes when I'm alone I think about you.   I love the times when I help you.  I'm sorry for scaring you.

I know when you say, "I hate you.  Go away,"  I know you don't mean it.  You only really mean that you are mad.  I understand.

When I was a little girl making Mama play with me, I knew at that moment I would have you.  Other than getting Mama or Mimi, you're the best thing that's happened to me  When I'm at school I pray that God will keep you safe.  Happy Birthday!

Love, Zoe -- your big sister
Isn't that the funniest (you're the best and only sister I have!) and sweetest note ever?! I think I'm going to cry now. . . .

"It is too small to see and too big to hold." WOW! Sydney is convinced Zoe will be an author one day, since she is such an avid, thoughtful (and fast) writer.
