Kylie wanted to play with her makeup today and give me a little makeover. I sat on the floor with her while she painted my face ever so gently. I loved the way she treated the opportunity as if it were golden – taking her time to make sure each blob and stroke was just perfect. During my makeover, I realized that I am responsible for showing Kylie how to be a woman. It hit me like a ton of bricks and nearly took my breath away. I’ve been aware of this responsibility before, but this was the first time that the significance really sunk in. I felt the pressure piled on my shoulders, along with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I am truly blessed to be given this opportunity – to be able to guide and teach her what being a real woman entails. I know that I will make mistakes along the way, but I hope that we will both be able to learn from them. I pray that I will be able to lead by example so that one day she can do the same – just as my wonderful mother did for me.
