Words Stick

It’s the scariest thing to be a girl mom. Recently at Marshalls, I watched a young girl shopping for back to school with her Mom and overheard a conversation that broke my heart. Her Mom told her “chunky girls don’t wear things like that and you’re gonna be chunky your whole life, so get used to it.”  This little girl was no older than 10. I don’t pretend to know the whole story. But I do know that like that words stick. So I whispered to her, “You are more precious than rubies baby girl” and strolled right by. I hope those are the words that stick.
