Beautiful Tribute To Our Daughters

The 411 by Maria:
I received this book right before Mother's Day. It is absolutely incredible.  It is one perfect, powerful poem. A poem made into a book for mother's to give daughters and friends to give each other. 

Having a daughter for me, was on my bucket list. I knew I didn't have much say in the matter and prayed for Goddess as hard as I could without going overboard afraid that if I begged too hard, God would feel it was unfair and unwarranted.

What Sarah Kay does is takes everything I have ever felt or thought about my daughter and put it into words. Every girl should have a copy of this book. They should read it and re-read it because Sarah speaks the truth. Life will hit you in the face and wait for you to get back up so it can kick you in the stomach. This is a healthy dose of reality but written in a poetic, joyful way, truly beautiful way. 

Apologize when you've done something wrong. . 
But don't you ever apologize for the way your eyes refuse
to stop shining; your voice is small,
But don't you ever stop singing.

That lines brings tears to my eyes. It is everything I would have wanted someone to say to me as a child and it exactly how I want my Goddess to grow up. Never ever stop singing. 

After you read the book for the 10th time, go back and watch Sarah Kay read it. She really is very special and I want to thank her for writing everything I would want to say if I knew how.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book to facilitate this review.  No monetary compensation was received.
