…embrace who I am and love her. 
…encourage her to do better when needed, but
…not beat her up and put her down when she is less than stellar. 
I WILL…
…trust her judgment and not dismiss her heart. 
…praise her accomplishments and marvel at her creativity. 
…appreciate her beauty and sustain her strength. 
I WILL…
…pick her up when she falls and remind her that she is worthy and loved. 
…cherish her and help her move past her doubts and fears. 
…be her biggest cheerleader and applaud all she does. 
…love her like I would a daughter, and remind her
that she is the daughter of a King and treat her as such.
I will be kind to her
I will be kind to me!
For we are one and the same.
I am her!

SMILE!!

Smiling Is Infectious
Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled, I realized
I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized it’s worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel ‘round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

~Russel H. Conwell, 1843-1925
Baptist minister, orator,
founder-Temple University in PA
