"I'm Not Ready to Make Nice"

All About Beauty

Long legs, gorgeous clothing, smelling so nice, wearing the highest priced perfume. A fancy car. The white picket fence …. and the visions of sugar plumbs dancing in your head!

Sure it looks great, but how does it feel on the inside? I have sat back numerous times and just envied that gal. Long flowing hair, perfect complexion, blah, blah, blah!

One lesson in life that I have figured out, is that the grass is never greener on the other side. Sure it might be well manicured, but what sort of diseases lurk in the roots?

I’ll stick with puke, snot, bad jokes and dirty laundry, greasy husbands, and motorcycles in my living room. If I was given the choice to give it up for beauty, there would be no choice. Hands down, I would stay where I am. There’s nothing in the world that can take away the beauty of seeing my children for the first time. The beauty that swarms a toddler when he/she says “I Love You” for the first time ever.

The real beauty lays in the hands of Christ, Joy, faith, hope, love. It has nothing to do with what only runs skin deep.

It can’t be lost, or taken away. It’s there, forever. Engraved into your heart and veins. Aging, and hard times can’t erase this beauty. Ever.

Sharing and caring, that’s beauty.

This is what “beauty” should look like. Click Here.

Hold on tight, I’ll show you just a few examples of real beauty that lies within.

Sisters, smiling, laughing. Together. This is how I feel beautiful.

The Smile Of Sisters

Your daughters first catfish. Yes! We fish! And no she can’t pee in the woods! 

Christmas pictures, when you know your kids are faking the smile.

A “stray”  your husband brings home, that turns out to be a member of the family.

The love shared between a husband and wife. 

The blessings of a new family member.

Beauty is having a best friend, that doesn’t cry with  you, she’s always ready with a shovel saying “Which way?!”

This is where, and what beauty means to me. I hope my words have inspired you to feel better about you, and blessed you with a grin today.
