Dear little Meagan,

 

After 30 hours of labor, followed by a C-section, you took your first breath.

You were born on July 5th, 2009 - 3 days before your due date.

Your mom, My Ngoc, is one of the coolest friends whom I love the most in this world.

She just couldn't wait to send us your first picture from her Blackberry.

Do you know that your mom and I go way back to high school? (yup, in the early 90s)

She kicked everyone's ass in class (sorry ~ "butt", I mean) -

being the only one who used overhead slides to do her presentations.

Yes.. overhead slides! Back then, there were no fancy Power Point.

So as you can see, she was considered pretty HIGH TECH. 

I knew then your mother was destined to be a superwoman.

.. And one day, a beautiful mother.

You can see from her eyes that she already loves you so deeply, even before you were born.

And looking at your picture for the first time, I smiled.

You are sound asleep, so peaceful.

Silent.  No worries in the world.

Life is beautiful, and it is only the beginning for you...

The first colors you see

Your first dream

First word

First step

 

 

 

P1040126.JPG 

 

 

Yes... open your eyes.

There are so many things to see, to absorb.

 

Before you know it, you are already walking.. maybe stumble at times, but that's ok.

Because we all do, no matter how old we are.

Time will fly by,

You will have your first cavity (good things are always hard to resist - but, be good and brush your teeth before going to bed).

Your first bike ride (keep trying and trying, your mom won't let go till you're ready).

Your first crush (boys in elementary school might seem mean to you, but trust me, deep down inside, they really do like you).

Your first pimple (don't worry, your mommy and I both had them.  They go away).

 

 

DSC02433a.JPG 

 

 

 

Your first time using an Always pad (you'll then know how your mom felt like, the first time she tried putting diapers on you).

Your first heart break (ohhh sweetie, I know, it will hurt like crazy, but the pain will go away.............. I promise).

Your first time driving a car (... just stay off the sidewalks, then you'll be fine).

... You will have many "first times" for everything.

I know... isn't it fun?

There are no perfect equations - that's why they are so special.

And they are all yours to discover.

 

 

***

 

 

I haven't figured out everything yet, in my 30 years of living.

Life, I think, is a school that never stops teaching us.

So remember to have a humble heart.  And keep feeding your curiosity and thirst for learning.

Here are 5 little things I learned, that might be helpful to you someday:

 

1. What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger.

2. Really, be yourself.  It's the only way to go.

3. Love life as if you're madly in love, and everything it has to offer.

4. Dare to dream and always follow your passions.

5. Appreciate your family - they're simply the best.

 

 

***

 

 

Little Meagan, life might not always be a fairy tale.

But all the good and bad, mixed together, only makes life sweeter.

I know you will be a smart, tough cookie.

Cuz you'll learn from the best, your mother.

(Give her a big hug for me, will yah?  And tell her, I miss her terribly)

 

 

Love,

Auntie Fanny

  • My Ngoc
  • Meagan's mother

    Thank you so much for this very touching blog. You know I don't cry easily, but this sure did give me some tears. It is so nicely carefully written with words that are so sweet! Thank you for taking the time to write to Meagan. I will save this forever and show it to her when she grows up. Better yet, you should give it to her when you meet her! Hopefully that will be soon enough! :)

    Love you!

  • Hey girl,

    You are a kick ass person, a wonderful friend... and a beautiful, beautiful mother. I am so happy for you and for your family. This new addition into your family and LIFE will bring so many new exciting surprises and precious memories. Definitely priceless. And I wish I could be there to look at her sleep in person... and hold her while she yawns.. or laughs. I would love to read this little letter to her one day, when she's a bit more grown up... I think that would be so cute.

    After everything you have gone through and endured, you should be so proud of yourself. I am I am. You are truly a tough girl, and just such an awesome person, inside out. Love you lots girl ~~~~~ I send you ENDLESS hugs and kisses.

    Love always,
    Fanny xoxoxooxoxooxoxoxoxoox

  • 一個生命的誕生,帶給周圍的人有了活下去的勇氣與希望,尤其初生來到世間的生命,那種逐漸茁壯的姿態,更讓人為之效法。
    我想,妳的這篇文章在未來二十年後,可以讓她看看,因為她可是在大家的期待下來到世上的,應該讓她知道大家當初有多愛她~
  • 嗯, 沒錯~~ 她帶來希望, 勇氣,
    讓我更覺得人生是那麼的美妙, 珍貴.

    二十年後... 我想, 我在重新唸這封我寫給她的信也會很有趣吧!
    Cheers!!!

    我就決定寫給這小寶寶一封信,
    跟她說人生會有很多的"第一次" ~ 值得去珍惜, 探險..
    也形容了一些"第一次"的經驗會有什麼樣的感受..

    哈哈 ~ 寫一寫, 讓我同時回想我這30年的人生學了什麼!
    所以跟她分享了我這一生學到的5個東西,
    希望會有一天幫助她~

    小生命, 跟我現在的人生階段一樣, 感覺人生重新開始!!!
    真的是很妙的一種感覺!
    :)
