New discoveries I have made...
Being around people you love is all that matters.
Joci, Justin, cousins Paige, and Afton
Bad hair days, unfashionable clothes, stuff on your face have no affect on self-esteem.
Everything is better when you share it.
Materialistic stuff doesn't matter. A box, a used toy from a garage sale, or even a drawer full of towels can be way more fun than the fanciest, "hottest" toys.
When you're helping you're happy.
Creating things has more satisfaction than almost anything.
Being outside refreshes the soul.
There is no such thing as too many hugs.
In all seriousness though, I am humbled daily to see how happy and confident Jocelyn is no matter what - when I don't do her hair, when she has stains all over her clothes, when her clothes don't match, when she has a blemish on her face...all things that would put a serious cramp in my self confidence. These daily lessens remind me that my true value does not lie in my beauty, in my wardrobe, in my bank account, or in my triumphs at work. My value comes from being a daughter of God and by helping and loving others.
Thank you, Jocelyn, for reminding me.
