I was putting my daughter to bed the other night and looked over at her closet mirror. What I saw was too sweet not to mention as a suggestion! My husband had written a note on her mirror with a dry erase pen.
A few things crossed my mind…
- What a great guy my husband is
- How fortunate my daughter is
- A mirror – what a great place to write a note! Why have I never thought of that?
- And —- I don’t think my daughter will ever let me clean that mirror again
It may have taken him 30 seconds to write the note; however, it made a huge impact on her and I am thinking that the “note-writing vandal” will strike again (I hope).
You too can be a “note-writing vandal” and sneak into your daughter’s room with a dry erase marker and leave a note on a mirror in her room or in the bathroom she uses. You can leave a sentence, a verse, a reminder of who she is, or even just draw a silly picture. The big thing is that she will know that you care and you went out of your way to do something for her.
We all need to be reminded from time to time that there are people who love us for who we are. A girl’s mirror tells her many lies about herself – you are not pretty enough, your hair is not right, your nose is too big, your teeth are crooked, and for some girls the list goes on and on. What is your daughter’s mirror “saying” to her? What if she looked in the mirror and saw a reminder of who you think she is – who God thinks she is?
