Happy Birthday EMMA!!!

Dear Emma,
Happy Birthday to my precious granddaughter. I’m giving you one of my favorite books. It is a children’s book so the language is simple but this story has a profound message.
This book talks about some of the ways we can like ourselves.
Sometimes we forget that we can be our own best friend.
Sometimes we forget that we are our own best company.
Sometimes we forget to take good care of ourselves.
Sometimes we forget to look in the mirror and say, “Hi, good-looking!”
Sometimes we forget to like our body just the way it is.
Sometimes we forget that when we are sad, we can cheer our self up.
Sometimes we forget that when we fall down, we can pick ourselves up.
Sometimes we forget that when we make mistakes, we can try and try again.
Sometimes we forget that no matter where we go or what we do, we will always be us.

Emma, I love having you for my granddaughter. My heart sings when you walk in my door and come to my home.
It is a joy to live close to you and watch you grow up.
I hope you always remember to like yourself.
I will always love you with all my heart and soul.
Grandma Baadsgaard
