Project 31: Day 1 What Does Beauty Mean To You?

Friday, January 21, 2011

So, this doesn't sound like a hard question...what does beauty mean to me...and if I sit and think about it too long I'd probably never be able to answer it. I started to do that, too - think too deeply on it to the point that I though - oh, this challenge is going to be to hard to put into words. I even googled quotes about beauty for inspiration.

Then I sat back and looked at my desktop and around my office and beauty was staring me in the face. I have pictures of Emma & Aaron - my loves, my heart, my beauties - all around me and thought why did I even have to think about it. My children are the best that has ever come from me - the most beautiful thing I've ever done or made - they are perfect - flawless - innocent. Each person has their own beauties in their lives - mine are the two tiny people that my husband and I made together out of our love for one another. They are the most perfect gift that God chose to allow us. I thank Him daily for these two blessings that I have in my life that I truly do not deserve. The pure, unconditional love that I have for these two people is BEAUTY...and it still doesn't compare to the love He has for us...I think that's what beauty is - the true, most pure love that a parent has for their child. It cannot be explained - you have to experience it for yourself to understand. My mother used to always tell me, "When you have kids you'll understand why I do the things I do..." and she was right (like she usually is).
