I was supposed to pay for and attend the "IF:Gathering" either at my church or home, but I just couldn't find one more thing to do. Now this is suppose to be a very good two day event, but again, I just didn't want one more thing to do.
Perhaps I can see it again sometime. Or will make the other ones.
The kids were invited to a birthday party at the neighbors. They had much fun as kids should have! I wish to have fun once again as children do. And sadly, I didn't get to have fun even as a child. ...bah. Sigh. Tis life.
But I can dance now. Let's get to the dancing. Perhaps one day someone will dance with me. I love dancing.
Ahh, I hope my daughter will understand and feel beautiful. I hope to encourage this love inside her.
More Beautiful You
Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn't straight
her body isn't fake And she's always felt overweight
Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care
your skin your body your hair
Are perfect just the way you are
There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you
Little girl twenty-one the things that you've already done Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead
Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel that you are
So turn around you're not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It's not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forgets
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who's strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with his light he will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl
*What if you didn't crave carbs and junk?
*What if your body was burning fat while you're eating your delicious holiday meal?
*What if you could indulge a little without the guilt or weight gain?
*What if you could actually LOSE weight through the holidays while feeling less stressed and having more energy?
