Beauty


"Mama, I am going to be really beautiful when I grow up, aren't I?" Birdie asks as she is brushing her hair for church.

"Ummm, well yeah. You are going to be beautiful." I say, because she will be.

"Most girls are beautiful, you know. Because they want to be, huh." She adds thoughtfully.

Oh baby, that's truer that you know. We are beautiful when we want to be.

What a wise girl! I hope she can remember that as she grows up. It will be such a benefit to her and all around her. :) So sweet.

Yes. It's the deciding we are beautiful part that can be hard. She is already gorgeous and is getting more stunning every time I see her.

That girl of yours is pretty smart, I think.
