Compliment: You Are Prettyful

You Are Prettyful


Aha. Children say the most heartfelt and complimentary words.

Today, while getting my daughter ready for school, I stopped to tell her how amazingly beautiful she is. My daughter is gifted and gorgeous, I am one proud mama. God, I am thankful for this beautiful gift to us and I love your handiwork.

She returned the compliments only the way a child could

She said ”mom you are prettyful’’.

My world stopped. I took it all in. Even moms need to hear that from the most innocent amongst us.

As moms we need to regularly tell our children how awesome they are. Laying this foundation now will help them in the future.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it ~ Ps 139:14 (NLT)


Wherever you are, whoever you are and whatever is going on in your world today.

I’m saying to you,

You are Prettyful

You are Amazing, be amazing

You are the total package

You are all that and so much more

Go be amazing

Your world is waiting on you

Your people are waiting on you.

You are a Star, go Shine!

Welcome November – I have a feeling this month is going to be our best month so far!
