“A Mother’s Advice to her Daughter.”
“Be strong. Be intelligent. Smile knows that beauty has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and nothing to do with looks or other people’s opinions. Never do anything just because everyone else is if you believe it’s wrong. Always be true to yourself. Expect the best from life and that’s what you’ll get. Learn from your mistakes and failures. Believe in magic and wish on stars. Love and trust and be compassionate. Make faces. Play in mud puddles. Take bubbles baths. Turn off all the lights and watch lightning storms.

Don’t allow yourself or people around you to tolerate prejudices of, any kind. Don’t be afraid to at least once a week. Run through snowdrifts. Spin in circles and roll down hills. Pet afternoon naps. Stay up to watch the sunrise. Never apologize for being a woman or for being yourself. Never forget that I Love you more than any other person in the world no matter how far apart we are you will always be my daughter.”
