As we ring in the brand New Year, I can't help but marvel at how fast time flies. With each year that passes, so does the childhood of my daughters, which any mom knows can be the most bittersweet part of motherhood. As I reflect on the past and look to the future, my heart overflows with all the things I want my girls to grow up knowing. I can't help but get teary when I think of all the messages I hope they carry with throughout their lives.

I don't want another day to go by without them reading these important words. These are the hopes and wishes I want to share with my kids, today and this year and every year after that.

What would your love note to your child for 2013 say?
