it's all about your heart

Today I feel beautiful. No, I didn't shower or do my hair. yet. I haven't put on make up (and I probably won't). But I feel beautiful. Because today when I looked in the mirror, I glimpsed something more than my physical appearance (which is...as you can see...interesting).

I saw a healthy body, hair on my head, clean, clear skin, a smile. I saw a mother who, though struggling most of the time, is trying hard to give her daughter everything she can.

I have every blessing in the world. Good health, a sound mind, a perfect husband (who always treats me as if I'm the most beautiful woman in the whole universe), a darling baby girl, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. That is more than enough reason to feel beautiful.

What makes you feel beautiful?


  1. I love this. I often think about this too. You are beautiful without makeup!

  2. Lori, you are just awesome! And I loved reading your "story", by the way.
