Reflections Contest Entry - 2008
Once my younger sister and I bought some sparkle spray
at the beauty store. We loved putting it on all over our
bodies, especially our cheeks and foreheads. People
probably noticed that it was just artificial.
If you are wearing sparkle spray, people can still tell that it’s
What is on the outside doesn’t matter as much as what is on
the inside –
your kind heart,
A big house doesn’t matter. Fancy clothes aren’t all that
Sparkles are beautiful, especially sparkles that are inside.
If you are good, you will sparkle.
People who help are sparkly.
You can see it in their eyes.
You see that someone sparkles by how they act.
Sparkles come out by helping.
They come out of your heart.
Your eyes will shine.
Your words will be kind.
Your hands will help.
Your mind will tell you what is right and
your heart will help you act on it.
Your feet will carry you to the right place.
So, come on! Just sparkle!
