A Letter

Dear Zoey,

     It's official, you're finally 3.  I'm a little relieved that I no longer have to deal with gawking strangers commenting on how big and smart you are.  Now if you can just slow down a little bit and act your age, that would be wonderful.  Although, I know you never will.  You'll always want to be 10 years older than you really are and I know that will not change no matter what your age.  How do I know that my Zoe's nose?  It's because you're just like your mama.  I know, I'm sorry for telling you that, because there's nothing worse than parents telling you, you're just like them. So hopefully you won't read this until you're 30 and have accepted your fate, or maybe you won't read this ever, if you're really lucky. 
    The good news Zoey is your Dad and I happen to think you're the coolest lady around.  You have charisma oozing out of every part of you.  People love you from the second they know you.  Because of that, you'll do amazing things.  I can't wait to watch you grow and watch you choose your profession and husband(hopefully he's just like daddo) and more importantly I can't wait to watch you have your own children. 
     I know, I told you you're just like me, but know this Zoey, you're also better than me.  The Lord choose you to be a little sister to two rambunctious older boys and you have a special calling to be a big sister to a little sister that will always need you and your help.  Don't forget that you chose this calling before you came down to this earth. You and Evey made a deal before you came here and promised to look out for one another.  You may feel discouraged some days and wish you had a "normal" sister, but remember there's no such thing as "normal" in this mortality.  Because of your gifts and talents, you've been given a lot of responsibility.  You'll have all the opportunities in the world to bless your own brothers and sisters and all those that come to know you through them.  Stay close to the Lord, use all your gifts and talents for good, and you'll accomplish anything you put your mind to. 
    We will definitely have some bumps and bruises along the way, that I am sure of.  But you are oh so loved, Zoey.  You are loved by your siblings, by your parents, and most importantly by your Heavenly Father.  Don't ever forget where you came from and where you're going.  We love you more than you'll ever know, thank you for being you, and for blessing our lives more than we deserve.

Mom and Dad
