Precious Gifts

These are a few gifts my sister has given my daughter.

Breaking Stereotypes.

Showing Strength.

Following Dreams.

Not just having a role model...
...being one.


Showing courage.
Leading.


Dominating.


Showing NO FEAR.


Imagine what you could do empowered like that.


And then that strong woman grabs your hand and says,
"Come on, Annie."

Stand Tall, Baby Girl,
Stand Tall.
I can already see you
shaping her future,
thanks Kate.

Hi Libbie,

Your post today brought a tear to my eye. Okay, several tears! Annie is lucky to have you as her mother and her aunt as one of her role models. Thank goodness Miss P has Natasha and Stacey. I am woman, hear me roar (or sniffle as is the case right now):)

OOOOOHHHH, you are going to make me cry...

But couldn't you have Photoshopped my butt???? Those pants are ugly, even on the super skinny girls...

Thanks for all your support, football has been quite the journey. One never knows where life will take us!

A great sis, aunt, and you for acknowledging her strenghts to pass along. I'm sure you have some of those traits, too. Just maybe without the football pads. :) Beautiful. I'd try to print that out, and save. Great!
