One of the darkest times in my life was during my separation and divorce. Amongst issues between the girls and their father of a personal nature, during this period in my life false claims were made about me, my Pastor wrote an inaccurate letter, there were lost friendships, lost court papers and financial concerns as I was trying to manage a house that just wouldn't sell.
My daughter brought me back to that Quote the other tonight when, during the drive home from gymnastics, she spoke to us about being upset that a young girl in her class resorted to bullying her. We spoke to her about how we would address this with the centre and encouraged her to address this with her teacher when and if it happened again and she said that she was not strong enough to do so. She was scared to stand up for herself because she is petite and the other girl is taller.
And so it seems my role is to now teach my beautiful young lady that she is stronger then she knows! Those little hands can do big things; the size of the person is nothing compared to the size of their heart and determination and that she has a voice! Time to teach my baby girl that she is a tea bag.
