An Open Letter to My Daughter (and Yours)

Dear Beautiful Girl,

An Open Letter to My Daughter (and Yours)There has been much media coverage this week of celebrity antics and what is appropriate behavior, as we all prepared for what controversy the VMAs would spark next. I want you to know that you never need to put on a show or take extreme measures to get attention. It is unbecoming and unladylike to do so.

Please know that you are infinitely loved. The only thing you need to do to get attention is to ask me. I will always walk your most difficult mile with you and gladly dry your tears. When girls seek attention by dressing provocatively or changing their appearance, it is obvious to the world that they are hiding something else.

You never need to hide your true self from me, or from the people who truly love you and care about you. We love you without exception. We love you without ornamentation. We love you with all of your imperfections and all of your successes.

When you begin to doubt yourself, remember the unwavering love that surrounds you. I will never turn my back on you. And, God will always stand by your side. His love is recorded for you; when you doubt, turn to the Bible for a reminder.

Be strong in your conviction, your Faith and your resolve. Be kind. Be confident. Be a lady. Be honest.

Always know, there is nothing that you can do that will shake the foundation of my love for you. My only expectation for your life is that you live in such a way that makes you proud of yourself. I take great pride in knowing you and loving you.

All my Love,
Mom
