GIRL POWER - an essay in Photos

Where did you learn about:

(thanks for the photo Colleen!)

Was it from:
Your crazy friends?

Maybe your Grandma?

Or did it come from experience?

Liz writes:
This is my girlpower photo because whenever I need to feel like I have accomplishedanything in this world I look at this photo. I grew this person for9+ months, pushed her out for a whole day, nursed her for the next 15months and loved her every second since the minute we knew she wascoming. Now she is her own girl who does not need a BABYsitter, but abig girl sitter, who picks her own clothes, and writes her own name.Every day I make choices that affect her well-being and development.If that isn't girl power I don't know what is.

I learned about girl power from my mom - a lady who embodies toughness with a smile:

Feminine Strength

Beneath the soft delicate skin,
under the carefully applied lip glosslies strength beyond all measure.

Strength rooted in a legacy.
Without the need to prove it exists.
My Mother gave it to me and hopefully your Mother gave it to you.

The strength is enough to literally
move a mountain and is only limited
when we allow it.

A woman's true strength is unrivaled even if she doesn't know it. I won't let anyone tell me otherwise.

LOVED the photos for this challenge. I totally idolized Sam from The Facts Of Life. hehe
