He called me "babe"

Someday babe, you’re going to see yourself the way I do.
I’m watching you and crying with you. You’re not as alone as you feel.
My heart hurts with yours. Why are you so sad? Don’t you see how beautiful you are?

Someday babe, I will be able to hold you again. You’ve been broken for too long. If you could only love yourself as much as I love you, you would never feel afraid. You would know that you have nothing to be afraid of, because no matter what happens, you will be ok. I promise you this.

Someday babe, you will stop feeling so insecure. You will feel good in your skin. You will feel complete and content. You will be at peace deep in your soul. All of the people who have hurt you will be distant memories and stepping stones. You will be able to live freely in every moment and the past will no longer weigh you down.

Someday babe, you won’t be afraid to go certain places. People won’t affect you like they do now. You won’t find yourself scanning the room constantly. You will walk in confidence and you won’t be afraid. You will know that I am right there with you. You will feel strong. You are strong.

Someday babe, your life choices will no longer haunt you. You will realize that they made you, and you are perfect exactly as you are. You are caring, smart, funny and a wonderful mother to 2 boys who love you more than you know. You won’t need to hear these things from someone else because you will know this, deep in your soul.

Someday babe, you won’t want to be anyone but yourself. I will be smiling down on you as you become who you were always meant to be. I will be up here loving you.

Dad
