Letter written by: Chris McClerklin | Peaceable Solutions Lead Consultant
I am writing this letter to you as an expression of gratitude. I am grateful for being entrusted the responsibility of rearing you and for being chosen to serve as your father. You are a like a delicate, beautiful flower that emits a distinct aroma designed by the Creator exclusively for you. You were created with such intricate detail to be reflected in your spirit, soul, and body that all of nature awaits your evolution from princess to queen.
Though daunting at times, rearing you was as much about my development as it was yours. You see, as your father, I have to tend to the garden of your soul ensuring that the seeds of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding take root and supersede weeds from deceptive people. As a steward, I relinquish ownership while humbly standing watch over your dreams and visions as if they are my own - teaching you to speak from your spirit not situation. As your coach, I seek counsel on how to relate to your indecisiveness while not interpreting it as immaturity but as an opportunity to share a life lesson with your eager and free spirit.
Yes, I thought of you today. I thought of how you went from “babbler” to an articulate young lady, from “wobbly knees” to walking among women of class, and how your faith, vision, and determination drive you to fulfill your created purpose.
