Like I said, I have two thoughts for today, because I can!!
Today, I am thinking about what it means to raise girls. Because, I have two ya’ll! I better get my thoughts together on what this means!!
Of course I loved this movie. And, I read the book first, and REALLY loved it. I was impressed with how close the movie stuck to the book. But, these lines cried out in my heart the loudest afterwards. It is so important to teach girls that they have worth, that they are kind, smart and important. Girls struggle so much with self esteem, we must, as Mama’s, teach them how lovely they truly are. After all, they are created in God’s image.
I remember my best friend growing up, Erin, had a sign on her wall. It said, “I know I’m something, because God don’t make no junk.” It’s funny!! But, it’s true. None of us are junk!!
OK, so this isn’t really something I need to do, but something my husband needs to do. And, he does!! And, of course I do need to play my part in the love game. I just think it is so lovely that something so simple, like loving each other well, can have such a profound effect on our girls.
They do need to see what true love looks like, so they know what to look for in a man!!
