This One's for the Girls...


My cousin Sharon bought me a CD (Martina McBride's: Martina) pretty soon after Libby was born, so Icould hear the song "In My Daughter's Eyes". It's a great song. Makes me cry everytime I hear it. One of my other favorite songs on there is a song called, "This One's for the Girls". The lyrics go as follows.


"This one's for all you girls about thirteen
High school canbe so rough, can be so mean
Hold onto, on to your innocence
Stand your ground when everyone's giving in

This one's for the girls

This is for all you girls about twenty-five
In a little apartment, just trying to get by
Living on, on dreams and spaghetti-o's
Wondering where you life is gonna go

This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls

This is for all you girls about forty-two
Tossing pennies into the Fountain of Youth
Every laugh, laugh line on your face
Made you who you are today

This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls

Yeah, we're all the same inside (same inside)
From 1 to 99

This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls
Yeah, this one's for the girls"

I am so thankful to God for all the friendships that I have. I have been so blessed in so many ways by the "girls" in my life. I remember a time where I wasn't so keen on being a female. I thought it was better to be a man. I kind of thought we were stuck with the short stick. You know with hormones, periods, babies and menopause, who wants that, right? Over time God has changed my perspective and shown me how wonderful it is to be a woman and to be feminine. I am enjoying this gift more and more in my life. I rejoice in the way God designed me and in who He made me to be. What a blessing it is to be a woman. So to all you wonderful women out there may you enjoy who God created you to be! This one's for you!

Psalm 139:14 - "I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
