Affirmations: My "In Love" Moment with Sesame Street

When I was a little girl, my great grandmother would allow my cousin and I to sit and watch Sesame Street in the afternoons.  We learned ABCs, counted numbers, sang songs, and learned so many lessons from Elmo and Big Bird.  As we got older, the lessons that were taught in school seemed to mirror or support a lot of those concepts and I learned that Sesame Street was a pretty cool show.

Fast forward to 2018 where I have two little girls and a not-so-little boy and I found myself looking to Sesame Street again for additional lessons.  I have always taught my children that they are beautiful.  Not because of their outward appearance, but because of their hearts and the way their hearts love so freely.  I have also taught them that they are beautiful because of their uniqueness.  No one in the world can do exactly what they do the exact way they do it.  God created them special.
