What Is A Girl?

 

Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people. They are born with a little bit of angel-shine about them and though it wears thin sometimes, there is always enough left over to lasso your heart - even when they are sitting in the mud, or crying temperamental tears, or parading up the street in mother's best clothes.

A little girls can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. She can jitter around, and stomp and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves, yet just when you open your mouth, she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.

Girls are available in five colors - black, white, red, yellow, or brown, yet Mother Nature always manages to select your favorite color when you place your order. They disprove the law of supply and demand - there are millions of little girls, but each is as precious as rubies.

God borrows from many creatures to make a little girl. He uses the song of a bird, the squeal of a pig, the stubbornness of a mule, the antics of a monkey, the spryness of a grasshopper, the curiosity of a cat, the speed of a gazelle, the slyness of a fox, the softness of a kitten and to top it all off He adds the mysterious mind of a woman.

A little girl likes new shoes, party dresses, small animals, first grade, noise makers, the girls next door, dolls, make believe, dancing lessons, ice cream, kitchens, coloring books, make-up, cans of water, going visiting, tea parties, and one boy. She doesn't care so much for visitors, boys in general, large dogs, hand-me-downs, straight chairs, vegetables, snow-suits, or staying in the front yard. She is loudest when you are thinking, the prettiest when she has provoked you, the busiest at bedtime, the quietest when you want to show her off and the most flirtatious when she absolutely must not get the best of you again.

Who else can cause you more grief, joy, irritation, satisfaction, embarrassment and genuine delight that this combination of Eve, Salome, and Florence Nightingale? She can muss up your home, your hair, your dignity - spend your money, your time and your temper - then just when your patience is ready to crack, her sunshine peeks through and you've lost again.

Yes, she is a nerve-racking nuisance, just a noisy bundle of mischief. But when your dreams tumble down and the world is a mess - when it seems you are pretty much of a fool after all - she can make you a king when she climbs up on you knee and whispers, "I love you best of all!"

Beatitudes For Children

 

Blessed is the child who has someone who believes in him, to who he can carry his problems unafraid.
Blessed is the child who is allowed to pursue his curiosity into every worthwhile field of information.
Blessed is the child who has someone who understands that childhood griefs are real and call for understanding and sympathy.
Blessed is the child who has about him those who believe in his divinity and not his depravity .
Blessed is the child whose love of the true, the beautiful and the good has been nourished through the years.
Blessed is the child whose innate imagination has been turned into channels of creative effort.
Blessed is the child whose efforts to achieve have found encouragement and commendation.
Blessed is the child who has learned freedom from selfishness through responsibility with others.
