Occasionally I buy myself flowers. When this small batch of daffodils opened up, I was surprised to find that one of the batch was white! I had them sitting on a table in my studio and noticed the American flag hanging on the garage outside. It immediately brought to mind the white pant suit. I pulled out the two books that I bought for my three daughters and set to work. The books “Strong Is The New Pretty” and “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” are on my coffee table so that my daughters are reminded that women are strong enough and smart enough to accomplish whatever they are willing to take on! Of course it takes a lot more than a book or two to build confidence. So I do my best to be a role model for my girls and show them how strong and smart I can be. - Christy Hegarty
