Tween Girls, flowers mid-bloom

Girlhood is the opening flower of womanhood. 
It has charms all its own. 
The wonderful blossoming of young, healthy girlhood, 
will ever be God’s great miracle in life’s garden. 

Girlhood is like a half-open rose. 
We are charmed, 
both by the beauty of the bud and by the wonderful coloring of the rose. 

We behold the familiar traits of childhood 
that have always charmed us and held our affections, 
but blended with these in ever changing variety 
are the graces and powers of womanhood.

--Beautiful Girlhood,

Remember to stop and admire your children, even if they are mid-bloom today.
