What Makes You Beautiful

"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson

There is a beautiful reciprocity in parenting. As I watch my children shine, be fearless, be beautiful, I am strengthened to do the same. They then are able to see their mother, fearless and beautiful move through life, and encouraged, are able to fearlessly and beautifully move through theirs and the cycle continues...

What makes you beautiful?


You're insecure,
Don't know what for


You're turning heads when you walk through the door




Don't need make up to cover up        




 Being yourself is enough







Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you 


Baby you light up my world like nobody else





The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed 

But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know,
Oh oh,
You don't know you're beautiful


If only you saw what I can see,
You'll understand why I want you so desperately

Right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe,
You don't know,
You don't know you're beautiful

That's what makes you beautiful!




TGI Friday

Summer has arrived with a vengeance! I'm not sure where the "vacation" part is, but the kids are out of school and the sun is blazing.  Between recital, My son's new job, preparing for my daughter's trip to the lake, we are running around like crazy! Amidst all the (continuing) chaos I'm still finding time to reflect on my TGI this Friday:

I am trusting: that the vacation part of summer vacation will arrive soon and my days (at least part of some)  will be filled with lazy time by the pool and a cocktail or two!

I am grateful: For the other dance moms who make me feel like I'm NOT crazy or at least that I'm  not the only one who is losing my mind during recital season. I'm also grateful that recital season is over...until next year!

I'm inspired, as always, but my Tiny Dancer. When I watch you dance, I see all the beauty present in the universe. I'm so happy you have found your passion, and I promise to do everything I can to encourage it! Dance on, Sweet Girl!

Please share what TGI you have this week!
