Regina H. Moore on June 28, 2019 at 2:12 pm Thank you, Jane, for this powerful post. Just today I found myself commenting on the beauty of a new friend’s 12-year old granddaughter. “She’s beautiful!” I said. I saw beauty in her posture, her inner strength, her temperment, and her attitude; however, I’m sure people only heard my complement with an eye toward her outward appearance. Thank you for reminding me of the power of words with our children.
