The Truth, In Word and Image

Debbie keeps it in a frame – a card her longtime friend sent to her years back. If you knew Debbie, you’d know this card is so much like her – an equestrian, a good woman, and just enough of a renegade to keep life interesting. That’s the specifics of why this card is so great.

In a general sense, it’s also amazing – a great message to all the girls who will grow up to be women, and all the women who grew from the girls they once were…

Life is an adventure. Be a good companion to those who join you in all the ups and downs – kind, considerate, and prayerful.

Just as important: dare to break the rules that need breaking, don’t be afraid to show strength and courage, and have a hell of a lot of fun.

You are a delight to God. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise – even your own inner critic.

You go, girl!

  2. I’dc say the guys appreciate both sides as well–your last comment reminded me of:

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure. It is our light and not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone. And as we let our love shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
    Marianne Williamson

    “We have what we seek. It is there all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known unto us.”
    Thomas Merton
