Aibileen Says

You is: 


 Smart
Kind

Important

Brave

Talented

Loved

Beautiful

I took liberties and added a few other things she might have said to Mae Mobley and you and me. From The Help by Katherine Stockett. We all need an Aibileen in our lives. Often. To remind us of the truth. Amen.

I have been working on a poem using the characters from this book; just wrote a draft yesterday. Haven't decided yet whether to post.

These would make a great deck of life cards. I like "Kind" and "Loved" best.

Amen to the truth indeed!

I definitely need the Aibileens in my life! Thankfully, there's one or two :-)
