My sweet Cate -
You don't have to be old to be wise. You taught me that, among thousands of other things. Your example of allowing the good to fill you and overflow is the lesson I cherish and strive for the most.
You have accomplished amazing things in your 12 years so far. I know you will continue to grace many others with your wisdom and joyful presence as you grow. You have a true gift in being able to wring the best out of any given moment - the best for yourself and for those around you.
I love you beyond words.
