A Daughter's Growth

As a parent it has always been my desire to see my kids succeed.  I have always prayed that they would grow to understand and appreciate how wonderfully made they are and to recognize the gifts that God uniquely placed in them for His glory and good works.  Recently I was given a glimpse of the wonderful and unique beauty within my precious daughter Madison.  It is with tremendous pride and also with her permission that I share her recent essay for admission into OSU.  I am so impressed with the wisdom and heart that created such a piece and hope it blesses each of you as it blessed me.

 If you could be a superhero, what would your powers be...... (by Madi Leigh) 

If I had a secret superhero identity my name would be Plus.  I’d work as a counselor by day so that I could hear all the negatives coming from different people.  Then I would shrink myself down to the form of a small, cue tip sized fairy, making it easier for me to whisper in peoples ears without being seen.  After I whisper positive messages and advice into these people’s dreams they would wake up with a new energy to use my whispers and do healthy, fun things for themselves.  I would be able to see their thoughts and would influence them in the dream to make their thoughts more cheerful and good for that person and their life. They would  wake up feeling so much better than they did the day before.  My whispers would benefit and help their lives no matter what circumstance they were in.  It would reduce depression, negativity, and suicide rates.  I believe that with the right push many can achieve better life styles.  They just have to find the right people to help them.  Many can be helpful to a troubled individual.  Some either don’t know that that person is troubled or they don’t see the need to be any assistance to them.  I also think loneliness and someone’s own thoughts can turn them to do things that they shouldn’t.  There is a little voice in people’s heads that seems so loud to them.  This voice says that the person doesn’t have any worth or that no one needs them anyway.  Then there is another voice, much smaller than the first, that tries to fight against the negative comments that it makes.  My power would help this second voice so that it may grow louder than the first voice over time, benefitting the individual.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability
and appearance. I must say you've done a awesome job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari. Superb

First of all I would like to say great blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out
there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
or tips? Thanks!

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you
should publish more about this subject matter,
it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't talk about these topics.
To the next! Many thanks!!

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
amazing blog!
