As Your Auntie, These are the Things I Promise to You

As Your Auntie, These are the Things I Promise to You

By: Linsey Johnson

I will love you all your life... to the ends of the earth and back again. Each of you has a special place in my heart and means the world to me. 

Just know that when everything goes wrong... when you lose your favorite toy or your brother pulls the head off of your new doll, you can come to me. I promise I will help you fix or find it. 

I will do everything I can to help make your life better. I know you will have days that life just doesn't seem fair, but I will try to guide you through it.

Always remember, no matter what anyone says, that you are good enough. If you aren't chosen first for the basketball team or you don’t get the part you wanted in dance class... you are still good enough.  

I will always be in your corner cheering you on every step of the way. 

I will always think you are the best at everything, so don’t worry about other people, because I know you will succeed at everything and anything that life throws at you... and I am here to help make that happen for you.

You can come to me when you feel like you can't go to your mom or dad. 

I know there will be times that you want to talk to someone and you feel like your mom or dad will be upset about it. 

But worry not, because I am here for you

I don’t have to tell them everything we talk about. Come bounce your ideas, fears, and aspirations off me. I promise we will work something out. 

As your aunt, I can love you like a parent and still treat you like a friend.

You will always have a family; trust me. I know we have one big crazy family that sometimes is noisy and can be a little rough on the nerves. 

They may seem like they pressure you a lot, but I promise each and every one of them loves you more than you will ever know or understand. 

I promise that when the world comes crashing down around you that this family will stand strong to protect you in every way they can.

You are loved more than you know. I promise.
