{Required Watching}

Monday, December 07, 2015


I don't know about you, but I had tears streaming down my face after watching this!
I kept thinking about how I would respond if it was me in the video seen rocking my
quintessential mom outfit {aka spandex running pants & tattered gray hoodie from college}.
I also thought about sweet Bravey.
How would she react to being told she was beautiful from a stranger in high school?
I can only pray she hears it from her Papa and I everyday and believes it with her whole being to be true.
You. Are. Beautiful. Sweet. Bravey.
So are all of you.

Thank you for sharing this Emily. I'm sitting here sobbing with my baby girl asleep in a wrap on my chest and hoping the world is a more peaceful and beautiful place soon. This is exactly what I needed today.

I saw this the other day and shared the same sweet sentiments. I always admire how much love you not only have for but also express for your friends, family, hubs, and little one. And strangers at that! I appreciate your constant positivity and reminders!

That was so awesome! Thank you for sharing. I am a high school English teacher and I was watching that during my lunch break wondering if my own students know that I think they are beautiful...I may tell them to watch this on their own...Great!

Thanks for sharing this. It's so easy to get caught up in the sad broken world we live in - it is a nice reminder that we were created in the image of Someone beautiful and others see that in us.
