for future Gemma

dear future 15 year old Gemma,
We are probably fighting about something.  If you're anything like I was when I was a teenage girl, I imagine you have a big personality and a mouth to go with it.  You probably think I'm treating you unfairly and that I don't have any idea what you're going through.  I probably think you are being dramatic and I say too often, "Gemma's got a dilemma" all annoying and old lady mom like when I really think I'm being funny because it rhymes.

Well Gemmi, a long time ago, I was the one that made you laugh the hardest.  And you were the one that could make my day better with a coo.  And we would have secret moments that we would talk and laugh with our noses just barely touching.  And you looked at me like I had all the answers to the world.  And I looked at you like you were the whole world.

So even if we're fighting out there in the future, my teenage Gemmi Bear, know that back here in the present we are spending our afternoons together giggling over kisses.

I will always love you, Gem.  Even if someday we drive each other totally crazy.
your mumma
