Dear Mom and Dad

I didn't know what to get you for Christmas. I'm completely broke, so my best bet was to get or make something with sentimental value. The only problem is, I'm horrible at that kind of thing! I'm practically like a guy that way!So I decided to write you a letter.
I wish I could be the perfect daughter. I wish I could be smart enough to get good Maths grades, I wish I could be kind enough not to fight with my sisters, I wish I could be pretty enough or strong enough to walk around without makeup. I wish I could be about five bazillion other things that would make you proud.
But I'm not. I'm not smart, kind, or strong enough. I'm sarcastic, snappish, nasty, lazy, and at least fifty-two other things. Some of them I wish I wasn't, others I embrace although I shouldn't.
The thing is, though, I love you. You two are my best role models, even though I don't act it sometimes, or often even think it. I love you, I will always love you, and I know you will always love me too. We have a bond, and it's a family bond. That's the strongest bond there is.
