Day 281 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write a parent’s wishes for their child.
Erin: I want my daughter to be as strong as a I would suspect from a son. I want her to have a happy, fulfilling life on her own. Her worth should come from the entirety of herself and experiences, not her dress size. I hope she never gives up on a dream that matters to her. If she finds love, I want her partner to respect her as an equal in their life together. If she doesn’t find a life partner I hope she doesn’t doubt her life is full, and beautiful. Most importantly I wish her a life that brings her as much happiness as she brings me.
Shannon: I want my child to be brave. I want her to always stand up for what she believes in, even when that’s not the easy choice. I want her to be smart, so she can always be confident in her arguments but open-minded enough to hear everyone out. I hope she’s kind and has no intentions to cause anyone any harm. I hope she finds her place in this world, and that she doesn’t believe she has to change who she’ll always truly be just to find it. I hope she believes in herself, and believes in a lot more. I hope she ends up happy, really, really happy. If she’s happy, I’m happy.
