When did I ...

Truly find out the meaning of Girl Power? Fancy simple wants visual proof. I created THIS. If that ain't some chica power - I don't know WHAT is!!!

Here's proof...


I've always been a mouthy - nothing in this world can stop me - kind of girl. until i had this... a family. still - nothing can stop me - but my focus has shifted. i am no longer focused on just my well being. i am humbled everyday. i am grounded. i am stronger. i realize i really can do it all - with only a little patience and perserverance. i can create a human being. i can shape her and help her grow. i can educate her, empower her, love her, hug & kiss her, smile with her, laugh till my head hurts with her, cry with her...just BE with her. that bond is so intense... it often takes my very breath away. being a momma makes me feel powerful - but being a momma to a little girl - makes me truly eat, breath, and sleep the meaning of girl power.

when did you realize YOU had it?
