Dear College Princess,


Dear College Princess,
I am writing this letter to tell you how proud of you I am ! This past week you showed me how wise you have become ... by listening to your gut instincts. An acquaintance of yours wanted to set you up with a fellow who was Mr. Wonderful: he was handsome, smart, and had everything going for him. Well... you talked to Mr. Wonderful a few times on the phone and indeed he seemed very charming in his attempts to woo you for a date. Yet you held back... telling me "Mom, something is just not right... I just feel it inside of me ". The boy kept calling... and the girl friends kept on encouraging you to go . Yet you kept listening to that little voice inside . Later that week you mentioned the struggle you were having to a friend in your kinesthetic class . Small villages that college campuses are, your friend happened to know Mr. Wonderful and told you about her dating experience with him . Her experiences validated your little voices inside. I say HOORAY for YOU college princess....

HOORAY for listening to your gut !! You have reached a vital milestone that many adults have not yet conquered !
WAY TO GO !!!

Isnt that right girls ???

Love you tons, Mom

Good for her!

And you're right -- very few adults listen to that gut of theirs.
