“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss.
She sat there with a certain twinkle in her eye. Her outfit, picked with purpose and joy, shining for all to see . . .”I’m different,” it seemed to say. She sipped on a sweet lemonade. Her confidence glowing. I stared with a sense of awe. Her uniqueness was clear and present. She wasn’t trying too hard. She was comfortable. She was herself.
May our children know they are loved and that they are unique. As parents, I pray to foster that sense of self and cheer them on daily.
