Now that we know we are having a girl, my thoughts on motherhood are more specifically tailored to how raising a girl is different than just raising a kid. I found this article online, and it really aligned with how I feel about today’s culture. I thought I would pass it along to all of you moms and dads of little girls. To each her own, I say. But this article really summed up and affirmed what I believe.
My prayer for you, Ellen Margherita, is that you are able to be childish in your childhood and childlike as an adult. I pray that you have the wherewithal and fortitude to love God and yourself. And I pray that your actions always align with these prayers. I don’t pray for just happiness because I hope these other things will create happiness for you.
So, here is the article.
Much love xo
