Prudent Advice – a gem of a book,
with a subtitle of: Lessons for my baby daughter
and a 2nd subtitle: Life Lessons for every woman.
I bought a few of these on Amazon. A few because I know what a great gift it will make, over and over. I encourage my daughters to be able to be independent. One never knows. I don’t have to encourage them to be smart or kind- they already are. My sisters are a lifeblood. My mother is and always has been out there in front of us leading the way – just by living her life the way she does. She’ll be 80 this month. How can that be?
Recently we got a several women in my family together:
I call that a caja de gatos, or “box of kittens.” When my girls were little, when my kids were little, we would climb on my bed and read and talk and snuggle and giggle for hours. We were like a box of kittens, minus the claws.
But back to the book – it contains 500 mini-lessons running the gauntlet of ethical advice, kindness, thinking for oneself, seeing beauty in everything and everyone – especially on the inside. The author’s aim was to help girls/women develop into well rounded, sophisticated women.
The author lightheartedly quips that “it’s a collection of advice of questionable importance to share with my daughter before we grow up.” I like that the mom is still growing.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy it if you have any girls in your life.
Needing more than a little prudent advice for girls? If you are an empty nest mom looking to continue your education,Scholarships4Moms can help you get by without much financial burden.
Girls, girls, girls, they make the world go round and hold up the families of this world. Love ‘em.
