A letter to my girls,

Dear Claire, Jane, and Charlotte,I love you each so much and because I love you so much I want to tell you some things.First of all, you should know that you bring so much joy and happiness to my life,and I thank you for that.You are each different and unique but share something in common; you know who you are.You are daughters of God, daughters of Eve, and my daughters. Because you have this knowledge, you have a beautiful responsibility to love others, serve others, and share your light with everyone you know, and even those you don't know. Because you are women of God, I hope you will honor Him through your actions and thoughts.Someday (soon) you will start hanging out with boys and the way you act, how you fill your time, the way you deal with uncertainty, and the way you dress and honor your body will help them understand how to value and respect you and other women ....more
