Kelly Pelfrey is releasing one of the most unique series we have seen this year:
Kelly was inspired by her own final weeks of pregnancy to create a series that represents the beauty of having a daughter. Aside from ultrasound blurs, new moms have no idea what their daughter will actually look like until she is born. Kelly shares that she really doesn't know the child yet, it is all a mystery until her birthday... but there are truths that Kelly and all new moms can cling to:
She is beautiful.
She has been created for a purpose, engineered according to plan.
Every feature, including every quirk in her personality has been handcrafted. The count of her hairs is known.
Her life will include both heartache and happiness. Suffering and songs of joy.
And, she is loved.
She is fiercely loved.
From Kelly's own words:
These paintings are for the daughters. For the daughter on her 91st birthday and the daughter learning to shave her legs. For the daughter who just lost her husband and the one walking down the aisle. For the one limping her way through middle school halls and the one clinging to the rail in the nursing home. To the baby with her first cries, and the little old lady burying yet another friend. To the girls giggling on the playground and the women battling through the work week.
Daughter, whoever you are, wherever you are, you are loved. Not because of anything you have done. You are loved. Not because of your reflection. You are loved. Not because of your youth or your wisdom or your strivings. You are loved. Not because of your savings or your givings. You are loved.
So so very loved. Because you are a daughter, crafted by the perfect Most High King.
We all know a daughter. We all know a woman who is going through something right now that deserves celebration or a listening ear. We are all in this life together and if we use this series Kelly shared with us to inspire kindness, we can make the world a better place. Call your friend. Call your mom. Encourage the daughters of the world, because the world (as you know) is a harsh place.
