Don’t be a yawn

“Cherish forever what makes you unique, ’cause you’re really a yawn if it goes.”  ~ Bette Midler

In honor of my daughter’s birthday, I re-post this mother-daughter heart-to-heart.  Happy Birthday, my darling girl…

To my daughter, and to her daughter,

And to all girls with messy hair and

Brave & adventurous hearts…

Your messy, wild and strong spirit

Is a BIG gift from God

That you get to unwrap each day

So don’t you dare compromise your

Original Beautiful Design

To fit some man-made religious & legalistic mold.

Stay far from those who try to mold you

Close to those who can help unfold you

And live your messy-hair life

With style and a smile

Knowing you were created in the Heart of God

And He does all things well.
