Clarissa came home from school one day in tears. Her schoolmates have teased her and called her ugly. I didn't want her to have such a shallow perception on being beautiful and I decided to scrap this page to make her feel better.
The words are simple and not from me. I saw it somewhere and found that it was very suitable here. The wordings in this layout goes:
If you smile often
If you seek to be kind
If you are always thankful
Then you will always be beautiful.
That is one of the main reason that I scrap. I really want to leave my mark and lessons to my kids. I know it sounds ambitious but to me nothing is more powerful than the written word. I hope that in time, they will read and these journals do become something for them to hold on to, especially when I am not around.
