left-handed daughter

I need advice! I have a 5 year old daughter in kindergarten who is left-handed. She has told me before that she wished she was right-handed like myself, her dad and her 7 year old sister. I try to tell her that God made everyone different, she's special, and many other things. Tonight was different, she was in tears because she is left handed and wants to be like the rest of the family. She sat down and practiced writing for 20 minutes with her right hand. What do I do?? I want her to be happy, but I can't make her see that it's ok to be different.
