Someone Thinks I'm Perfect

I received a video email tonight from one of the most special people in my life.

At first I was a little taken aback by the title - then I realized, when I listened to the words, just what she meant.  She did send me the clean version, which I posted.

I have been crying for a half an hour.

The chorus goes like this:

Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than
Less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing
You are perfect to me

You're so mean
When you talk
About yourself
You are wrong
Change the voices
In your head
Make them like you
So complicated
Look how big you'll make it

This all from a thirteen year old that loves her Momma.

I love you Wallene. Thank you sweetheart.
It means so much more than you will ever know.

Aaaaw Skippy, that is wonderful. I can just imagine you sat there crying, but in a nice way hopefully :) It is so sweet when our children do things like that for us, right out of the blue. The words of the song are Awesome!
