I did it!

LOL - Look Kell, I have friends and interesting people on my side bar!

OK - this is the photo that took my breath away! I snapped quite a few of Lilli and Liv, and this is the one that really stunned me. Lilli has always been a beautiful girl (and a little vixen!), but in this photo all of a sudden I saw the women she would become. And it scared me!

I want for her to be so much more than a pretty face ( not that there is anything wrong with that face!), I want her to know that she is worth more than her image, I want her to know that she is loved regardless of her looks, I want her to know that being pretty doesn't make you a good person, I want her to know she is perfect the way God made her, I want her to know regardless of what she does with her life, I am proud of her, I want her to know that life is more than fun and games - but choices and opportunities.

Being a mum is so HARD, how can I express all this to a six year old??

Love Lisa

P.S I wish my skin was still like that!!! LOL!

lisa, Miss Lill is growing up beautifully- and you are so much a reason for this.

She is so lucky to have a mum like you!

Lil will always be a stunner - but she has a lovely caring heart. She will touch those that no one else does. No one can love my blue tongue as much as she does. Her proud

She certainly is a little stunner Lisa. And I'm sure she'll know all that and more with the love of God and her parents and family on her life :)
