A Birthday Letter to J

Dearest J
Happy 2 Years Old Birthday!
This letter was written when you were two years old from mommy’s heart. The day you can read and understand what’s written on this card, will also be the day that you are slowly growing towards independence.
May your growing ability to read also be accompanied by your growing maturity and the wisdom to make the right choices in life. May you choose God and truly know His unconditional love, joy and peace that give meaning to life. For now, mommy and daddy decide what mommy and daddy prayerfully think are best for you.
These “Alphabet Puppets” that mommy made late into the nights and presented to you as a present on your two years old birthday signify the importance of literacy and education that mommy and daddy would like to convey to you.
You may be someone who learns fast and effortlessly or you may not be. It doesn’t matter. The most important thing is to reach your full God-given potential and to make learning your life. Keep going, don’t be discouraged by setbacks, learn at your pace and enjoy the fun in the process. In this way, you will certainly make progress in small, but sure steps. That’s what’s important.
Remember the virtue of putting in effort and time and having self-control and discipline. The geniuses from past and present do so too.
Throughout history, the greatest discovery by the greatest researcher and scientist did not come about without hard work. Behind the greatest scientific achievement were hours of labour put in the laboratory, conducting endless number of experiments.
The greatest piece of music by the greatest musician did not come about without hard work too. Behind the greatest piece of music ever composed were hours of practice put in at the piano or violin.
Hard work and fun does not need to be mutually exclusive. These handmade "Alphabet Puppets" are mommy’s attempt to show you that learning can be fun too.

Years from now, you would have outgrown these “Alphabet Puppets”, but whenever you look back at them, may you be reminded of the importance of obtaining literacy and education in life and fulfill the full potential that God intends you to reach - through hard work – and fun.
Mommy and Daddy would like to share with you a Bible verse on your birthday:

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." - Galatians 5:22

Happy Birthday, J. God, Mommy and Daddy love you very much.
Love and hugs,
Mommy & Daddy
