Dear young Nicole, When I look at you I see a spirit that is gentle and sweet.  A girl who is trusting and believes in all things that are good.  You are beautiful.  Beautifully wild.  When I look at you I see a girl who is guileless and unassuming.  I see innocence and a tender heart.  What I love and appreciate about you is your imagination.  Every where you go you bring creation.  You sing out loud with all that is in you.  Nothing holds you back.  You play.  I love how you love.  You celebrate.  You give all that you have and take care of all living things.  I appreciate your big dreams.  You are doing it right girl! What makes your light shine is your love and the joy you find in other people and animals.  Even at such a young age you have a belief so unbreakable of your Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I want to take care of you Little Nicole.  I want to nurture your tender qualities.  You are so special.
