I hope it does not make anyone feel guilty. Perhaps we should call it "Great Ideas for Mothers of Daughters." I think the only "rules" should be these:
- Love your daughter, no matter what. Even when she doesn't want you to, and especially when you don't want to.
- Teach her about her infinite worth and royal heritage. She will need this undergirding to get through what life has to throw at her.
- Show her how to love.
- Teach her that life is bigger than she is, and help guide her towards the best paths to become what God has set out for her.
- Keep loving her. You both need it.
That's all. But I think I'll go collect a hug now. And maybe tomorrow we'll paint our toenails.
