Sorry Cori, I am stealing this from you.
So for all of you who know my sister, you know that she is an amazing writer and has a beautiful thought process that seems to turn ideas into Gold. She can always say exactly what's going through my mind (but better), and knows how to express what so many of us think but wouldn't know how to tell. I was reading her blog and came across a passage that I really love and think all men and women need to hear, so here it is...
"Mothers, fathers, have you thought about the power you have over your children? What are their strengths? Do you tell them? Tell them what you know they are, what you know they can be, and they will become it. I love my daughter's hair color. It's beautiful and in the sun, she has the most beautiful highlights. I brought her outside to take a picture of her hair in the sun. Then I told her how beautiful her hair is. She smiled."
