On her caption, Lucy remembered giving Juliana the book when she was four years old.

Lucy was then Juliana's "playmate on-call and [you] would say things like 'Mama, I wish we met already when you were little!'"

The note on the book's first page read: "To my beautiful Juliana.

"There is never a day that you do not make my heart burst with joy.

"Know that I will love you forever and ever and ever........

"Each day more than the one before that."

Lucy also posted her favorite throwback photo of Juliana.

She captioned: "Juliana must have been 5 or 6 years old here. She was playing in our room and I had just gotten home from a shop that made and exported fancy hats.

"I made her wear this , and she obediently did, just long enough for me to take this photo before running off to continue playing again.

"This photo is framed and sits on my desk, where I see it everyday.

"It is a favorite.

"I look at it and I see an answered prayer, my forever bundle of joy.

"I miss you this small @gomezjuliana, but I enjoy you now at 14, with your funny thoughts and comments as you share them with me."

A photo of mother and daughter side-by-side reminded us how much Juliana has grown.

She posted this a few days before Juliana's birthday on September 9, Lucy captioned: "My baby girl. I remember when you were just the size of your Daddy's shoe box.

"Look at you now—all of 14 years old, just a few inches shy of my height, same shoe size as mine.

"Don't grow up too fast just yet.

On Juliana's 15th birthday, Lucy recalled the time her daughter was just five and how she already had a "beautiful and compassionate heart."

She wrote: "When you were a little girl, you would fill up your empty milk jug with wild flowers from the garden and place it on your Daddy's desk to welcome him home.

"When you would see on TV news of suffering or tragedy, you would give me your piggy bank so that I could donate it on you behalf.

"You write me the sweetest little notes and make such happy drawings, all of which I have kept.

"Like your Daddy's handwritten love letters to me, those are my treasures.

"One time I was so sad and you walked in on me crying.

"You simply stayed beside me, and with your chubby fingers holding tissue, you wiped my fat tears and said something so random that I burst out laughing.

"You have a gift for making me switch from sad to happy, in an instant. you are very much like your Daddy that way.

"Once, we were watching an animated video of the life of Helen Keller and you just could not stop weeping. you were barely 5 years old.

"That early, I knew you had a beautiful and compassionate heart.

"Today, you are 15 years old.

"Keep your heart soft, even if the world is sometimes harsh.

"That is your strength.

"Pray always, make Jesus and Mama Mary your best friends.

"Know that Daddy and I love you very much. You are our everyday bundle of joy.

"Thank you for all that you are—the family comedian, my very own fashion police, the proof-reader of the articles I write.

"I forgive you for making me believe I could survive spinning class with you, and forgive me also for that one time that I made you wear white stockings.

"To my youngest and most constant best friend, I wish you all your dreams come true.

"P.S. No, at 15, you still are not allowed to drink coffee!"

A letter full of love.
