Of course we think little M is the most beautiful girl we know. She has an amazing smile, and her eyes are so expressive. She is stunning.
She is also sweet, and caring, and her sense of humor is AWESOME. She is smart…she learns quickly, and has an amazing memory.
She is good at problem solving, and good at drawing and crafting. She loves books, and likes to read. She loves her family and her friends.
No matter where we go, we get comments on little how cute, pretty, and beautiful little M is. And she is. But she is also so much more.
And I worry (shocker, huh?). How does it affect a little girl to hear only about how pretty you are all.the. time?
I sometimes wish she didn’t attract SO MUCH attention. I want her to know that things other than outer beauty are important, despite the positive attention her looks get her.
I want to teach her that compassion, love, respect, and humility are even more important, even though people may not gush about those things.
What a big job! I am glad God has trusted me with this precious little girl!
