Why God Made Little Girls

God made the world with its
Towering trees
Majestic Mountains and restless seas
Then pauses and said,

‘It needs one more thing…
Someone to laugh and dance and sing
To walk in the woods and gather flowers
To commune with nature in quite hours’.

So God made little girls
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles,

And when He had completed the task
He had begun
He was pleased and proud of the job
He had done
For the World, when seen through
A little girl’s eyes
Greatly resembles Paradise.

To My Sisters with Love

If I gathered up all my wishes for you and put them in a pretty basket,
your multi-colored bouquet would look like this.......

You'd have peace from every conflict you encounter in your life, all the love you need, and perfect health to enjoy this journey of life.

Your basket would be filled with dreams come true, goals met, and satisfaction with your achievements.

There would be many friendships to enhance your feeling of community and belonging.

A variety of meaningful relationships gives life spice and balance, so I'd fill your basket with the kind of friends you can call on, go places with and care for.

There would be prayers for your freedom from everything that binds you, and solutions to any problems you may have in life.

In this pretty basket of wishes, you would have everything you need and want.  Every situation and circumstance you encounter would enhance your potential for happiness.

May the time and concern you've invested in others translate into the kind of love and appreciation for yourself that you so deserve.

You are worthy.

You are beautiful.

You are loved.

As I stir through the memories of what we've shared through the years as sisters, I wish you happiness, and I hope your every dream is coming true!
