Extracts from: A Love Letter to my Daughter

Marry your best friend.
I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with.

Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important.Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them.

Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times.

Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark

Do not settle for second best. This sort of love is out there. And I hope you have the courage to start over, and try again until you have found it. This love is worth it, baby girl.

Throughout your life, I want you to be sure that I love your father. Wildly. Effortlessly. Thoroughly…and I know wholeheartedly that that love is reciprocated

— I really like the last paragraph “Wildly. Effortlessly. Thoroughly” and I hope I can sincerely say this to my children about their father…someday, genotype or not.
