Come with Me to the Water

Come with Me to the Water

Come with me to the water, friends. Come with me. This simple statement has echoed in my mind this past week.

Flowers or Thorns

Life is so beautiful, full of colors and shapes for a little girl who loves to draw flowers. Grass is greener and the blue sky is filled with funny shaped clouds, each one telling a different cute story. Isn’t that how little girls perceive their world? Why should that change?
