Beautiful Flower, Beautiful Song

Having a mom who is also an author means she is always giving me great books to read. Usually, though, when it comes to music, Mom is way uncool. But last week, Mom found an amazing song for me. It is called Beautiful Flower by India.Arie. She wrote it for the girls at Oprah's school in Africa. The song is inspirtational and beautiful. Here are the lyrics:

This is a song for
Every girl who's
Ever been through something
She thought she couldn't make it through
I sing these words because
I was that girl too
Wanting something better than this
But who do I turn to?
Now we're moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives
Cuz you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind and
There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautiful, yeah you
Who are brilliant, yeah you
Who are powerful, yeah you
Who are resilient
This is a song for
Every girl who
Feels that she is not special
Cuz she don't look like a supermodel coke bottle
The next time the radio tells you
To shake your money maker
Shake your head and tell them
Tell them you're a leader
Now we're moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives
Cuz you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind and
There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautiful, yeah you
Who are brilliant, yeah you
Who are powerful, yeah you
Who are resilient, yeah you
Who are beautiful, yeah you
Who are brilliant, yeah you
Who are powerful, yeah you
Who are resilient, yeah you
This song is for you, yeah you
This song is for you, yeah you
This song is for you, yeah you
Yeah you
You are brilliant

Amazing, right? The song is my theme song and is great for every girl. You can buy the song on iTunes. All profits from the song go towards the school. So go and buy it!!!!

This is my last entry before camp. But Sammy will post from the Sydney Taylor Awards Banquet in Scottsdale. Yay Mom!

See you August 9th!

Faithy, I miss you already! I'm such a sap. I got all misty eyed just reading the words to that amazing song. It will always remind me of you.

Love,
Aunt Micky

Have a great time at camp, Faith!

I'm tagging you guys with a meme. You post your answers on your blog. Faith and Sammy you can write about yourselves or about your mom--you chose. Here are the rules.
Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
