An Open Letter to My Nieces & Nephews

To the ones who have my whole heart,

Your life is the most precious thing to me. Watching you grow from a child to the person you are today, has given me such happiness and joy.

Everyday I pray that you wake up and know that you are loved, you are wanted, and you are special. Everyday I pray that you look in the mirror and know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Everyday I pray that you follow your heart regardless of what other people think. To know that your dreams and passions matter. To know that your purpose, no matter what dream you pursue, is to bring all of the love, kindness, and joy to this world as you have brought to me. Everyday I pray that God will fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope.

Life is not always fair or easy, but life is always worth it. Life is a gift that you were given and your life means something. To live is the greatest adventure of all.

My dream for you is to become the person you are meant to be. My dream is for you to see the world and conquer it. My dream for you is to never give up and always push forward.

I want to leave you with one of my favorite verses: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9. This verse has guided me to be the best version of myself because I know the Lord is with me.

I wish this for you. I wish this for you because though I am always here for you, I will not always be on earth to remind you, but God will always be there for you. Never forget that. Never forget you matter. Never forget you are special. You are precious. And you are loved.

With all my heart has to give, Love your Aunt Rebecca 💖

  1. Rebecca, you’re the sweetest best aunt ever! I’m sure your niece’s and nephews will love you forever ❤️ I’m saddened by children who feel there is no other way out than suicide. Their life really hasn’t even begun. There’s so much life has to offer for these young souls. Nothing is ever free. It takes hard work and determination, but the rewards are soooo worth it. The richest thing to have in life above all else is love. To be loved and to have love for someone is one of God’s biggest goal for us. I’m so happy to see your niece’s and nephews are already on the right track having you in their lives.

    1. Aww. Thanks! ❤️ And yes, it makes me sad. There have been 6 suicides in my home town recently and it’s scary. One of my nieces was very close to the most recent one. 💔 It also doesn’t help there have been several heroin overdoses by parents in the area too. Makes me so sad. They need to know they are loved.
