Remember God is always with you, no matter how lonely you feel. There are times in life when you may feel like even your mom and dad have deserted you. But God will never desert you. If there is only one constant in this universe, it is God’s Love for you!
If you take pleasure in trying to make fun of me for that fact, then perhaps I might tell you that I don’t give a crap about what you think about me. Then again, I might not, and I’ll save you the embarrassment you tried to place on me!!!
Girls, don’t let anyone try to make you feel bad. If it is a friend, then maybe they shouldn’t be a friend anymore. True friends would never hurt your feelings on purpose. Now friends might make a mistake and accidentally hurt your feelings. Give them a chance to apologize before disowning them. Always give friends the benefit of the doubt.

When you were all very young I would ask you, “Are you going to love Daddie and give Daddie hugs and kisses forever?”
And you always said, “Yes.”
Then I would follow up with, “… even when you’re a…”
and you would all blurt out “TEENAGER!!!” 😉
