"I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny - a thousand things, before ‘thin’.

I never deserved you and I feel blessed to have had the precious time wrapped in your heart and mind that I did. I will cherish and long for it again forever. Live, love and be happy. sds xoxo
O God, I thank You for this day of life, For eyes to see the sky, For ears to hear the birds, For feet to walk amidst the trees, For hands to pick the flowers from the earth, For a sense of smell to breathe in the sweet perfumes of nature, For a mind to think about and appreciate the magic of everyday miracles, For a spirit to swell in Joy at Your Mighty Presence Everywhere.

True of all parenting, sometimes it's easy to forget. I'm not a grandparent yet but I'm sure there will be moments just like I sometimes thought in wonder goodness I sound just like my mother there will be moments I see my daughter as a Mum & think goodness she sounds just like me. So yes lets set a good example.
