Few days ago, I was heading to work when I saw this little girl. She was at the age of 5 or 6, so skinny, black hair in a Minnie-mouse like hairstyle. Her school uniform is yellow & dark blue, and her bag was almost as big as her. She kept holding on to the bag tightly trying to put it on her back, and then she ran to catch up with her older brother to cross the street to go to school.
She has this glorious determination in her eyes, and this “I will do it” look on her face, grabbed her brother’s hand while looking at cars thinking “I’m going to school today!”
I thought to myself “ What a wonderful morning!”
Couple of mornings after, same girl was walking in front of me. This time they were a group, looking like siblings from two families. She was talking to two older girls about her classes, teachers, and books! Her eyes, her body, her raised head, flying hair and proud soul were filling the space with joy. Everything in her was saying “I’m a girl, going to school, and I’m happy to learn!”
I thought to myself “What a blissful morning!”
Call me whatever, but there’s nothing more beautiful than a happy girl giggling in a school uniform. We are the joy, the sweetness, we are peace, prosperity, and future! Remember that when you look at your daughter, when you look at other people’s daughters, and when you look at yourself!
Love yourselves, Ladies. Embrace yourselves. And have a very happy morning!
I hear babies crying, I watch them grow.
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know.
And I think to myself “What a wonderful world!”
