To My teenage Daughter…With Love.


You are made of such beauty, yet lately I find myself speaking to you of what you are NOT, rather than celebrating the beauty the you ARE!

So today, my blog is dedicated to you, my sweet daughter. Today I am going to celebrate who you are and share your beauty with all my readers.

You are STRONG  because  you can take your grief and teach it to smile.

You are  BRAVE because  you have learned how to overcome your fear and help others to do the same.

You are HAPPY when you see a flower and are thankful for it blessing.

You are LOVING because you have never allowed your own pain to blind you to the pain of others.

You are WISE because you can recognize the limits of your wisdom.

You are TRUE when you are able to admit there are times that you fool even yourself. 

You are ALIVE  because your hope in tomorrow  means more to you than yesterdays mistakes.

You are GROWING because you are learning that you know what you are but… not what you will eventually become.

You are FREE when you are in control of yourself and do not wish to control others.

You are  HONORABLE because of your ability to understand that your honor is to honor others.

You are GENEROUS when you can take as sweetly as you can give.

You are HUMBLE when you do not know how humble you are.

You are THOUGHTFUL  when you see people just as they are and treat them with respect because of who they are.img_6481

You are MERCIFUL when you forgive others the faults that you condemn in yourself.

You are BEAUTIFUL l when you don’t need a mirror to tell you that you are.

You are RICH when you never need more than what you have.

You are YOU when you are at peace with who you are, and not troubled by who you are not.

You are my DAUGHTER…always, forever, and ever.

I love you. Even your name, ARMINDA means arm wide open, full of love.

It is my hope and my prayer that we can learn to express our love and appreciation for each other better.
