There once was a little girl …

Of all the Gorjuss Girl images I received from Heather, this one stood out as my very favorite!   Having raised two daughters, it was way too realistic!
A friend who has THREE daughters!!  ~ ages 10 to 16, also was VERY able to relate to this little girl!   So, I decided to make a card for her with this Gorjuss Girl, using one of my favorite poems from when I was young by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.   (I actually often quoted this to my daughters!).

There once was a little girl ...

There once was a little girl ...

Just seeing this little girl with her arms crossed in that defiant stance ….any Mother who has had a daughter knows….. brought me back to the days of  my adolescent girls!!    Fun, fun, fun!    (Although, I must say both of my daughters turned out pretty amazing, considering what we went through!    🙂

I added the rest of the poem to the inside of the card ~
 When she was good ...
I hope you’re having a good weekend!   Thank you so much for stopping by today …  can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!     🙂
