Today’s guest post comes from Felicia, of A Red Door Life.
Felicia is like a lot of you – a busy mom, who relies on her faith and family every day. Her posts cover it all, from how homework sucks to 7 things to do when you feel underappreciated. Her posts will have you nodding in agreement.
She sums it up well on her About page, when she answers the question, why do you blog?
Blogging for me is a journey. I first started this blog as a way to get back in touch with whoI am and to figure out what God wanted out of me in life. Now it’s a way for me to share his love in the day to day moments. As far as niches go I fall into the personal lifestyle blogger. I love to talk about it all (remember I like to ramble), bible studies, cooking, crafting, diy, home making, life, living, and so much more. I post weekly to do list, menu plans, things you should read, and a ton of other things. Really to much to list here. I hope you enjoy your time behind my Red Door and the small peak in my life it brings.
Today, she’s here to talk about lessons she learned from her daughters.
Let’s give Felicia a warm welcome on the CD.
Things I’ve Learned from my Girls
Having girls has taught me so much about my own gender. Weird right? You would think that seeing as how I am female I would know all there is to know about being one. Although I did grow up ‘girl’ it’s still enlightening to watch the process of going from baby to girl to teen and so on with observers eyes. When we grow up we don’t always get to appreciate the trails we go through. In the thick of it all you can think of is getting older not enjoying the time you have.
I’ve enjoyed the past 12 years of watching my babies become girls and can’t wait to see the transformation continue from girls to young ladies then on to women. Although I would be okay if they just stopped growing right this second.
Here are 10 things that watching my girls have taught me.
1.) Dress your best always. Going to the store? Wear your best high heels that light up and have feathers on them. Taking the dog for a walk? Only the best ball gown, circa Beauty and the Beast, will do.
2.) Tiaras can and should be worn anywhere with everything.
3.) There is strength in silence and sometimes mischief.
4.) Wearing your heart on your sleeve may be tough emotionally but it makes you more emotionally aware of others feelings and more compassionate beyond your years.
5.) Fears may not be overrated, ahem, spiders, but you can overcome with them with the right pair of shoes.
6.) There is no such thing as being shy in a group of 20 squealing giggling girls excited about cheer camp.
7.) You can’t fail if you keep practicing.
8.) Never underestimate the power of fluttering eyelashes, ever!
9.) Friends can be made anywhere (grocery store, bathroom, etc…) if you are willing to smile and be polite.
10.) Mercy is ladylike but revenge can be fun, especially against a daddy who stinks up your bathroom.
