Last Day of School

Yesterday was the last day of school. This was a good thing to Morgan. To me this was a bitter sweet day as this was also her last day of Elementary School. I had a tear in my eye when we picked her up today knowing this was the last time we would get her from that particular school. We have really enjoyed Morgan being at Lake Country the last 6 years. Everyone there is so nice, and they put up with me very well. We are not zoned to go to this school, but it was the school that we preferred so that is where she went, although that meant that we had to take her and pick her up every day. No buses when you go out of area, bu this was definitely worth every trip.
Morgan was glad to go, and is looking forward to Middle School. I am still reminiscing about the first day of school for her at Grace Academy in Sebring (where she went for Pre K and a few months of K). She was excited to go to school, but she was worried about how Grandma and Grandpa Lane were going to do with her gone. Grandma and Grandpa Lane kept her when she was little and they to were a little upset about her going to school, as they had become a bit attached to her. They all did fine, and Morgan was very close to her Great Grandparents because of this time she spent with them. It wasn't long before we went from 3 days a week to a full 5 days a week, and the grandparents still did fine.
I am sure that we will be posting shortly about all the excitement of middle school, so please say a prayer for patience for Don and I. :)

More Beautiful You

I have been listening to this song on the radio a lot recently and just received a CD with this song on it. I love it. As the mother of a daughter I can see both of these scenarios happening. I think that if more girls heard this message from their parents we would have less of the problems in society that we have today. I tried to upload a video, but I guess I am not smart enough.

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 and your hair
Are perfect just the way they 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 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 forget
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
