Yesterday, my wife got a present from a dear friend: a bag with the phrase 'Hello Gorgeous' printed on it. The bag, her friend said that it made her think of our family.
At home, we always use the word gorgeous as an endearment to call the kids and the mother. Yet, I am the only one that was never been called gorgeous, LOL.
Anyway, this made me think of the significance of word gorgeous. The dictionary defines it as beautiful, spectacular, splendid, wonderful, awesome, stunning, fabulous, attractive, lovely, personable, charming, delightful, or cute. A good word, but honestly, it does not portrait who my kids are.
Like every parent, I do think that my kids are fantastic but also I think that they are smart and very capable.
So, I need to find or to come up with a term that covers both criteria. A term that describes being clever and personable; that communicates intelligence and beauty. A term that certifies smart and gorgeous.
Smart and gorgeous, I like it; I can work with it.
From today on, I will call my kids SMARTGEOUS. So they will always understand that to be bright is as important as to be charming!
Who I am today as a person is largely due to my failures!
