Are YOU Beautiful!

I wrote this for Blissfully Domestic on March 1, 2010.  You can find the original post HERE!

Are YOU Beautiful?
Today a friend told me that I was beautiful!  Now you may be wondering what is so special and exciting about that.  Well this particular friend has NEVER met me in person.  He has never seen me and only knows me via the Internet.  Therefore, this man tells me I am beautiful and I pause and then think to myself, “Hmmm, He does not know me, He cannot see the extra pounds I put on since being unemployed.  He cannot see the gray hairs that dominate the right and left temple areas.  He cannot see that my nose is a little too wide…”  (Yes, this all ran through my head in the awkward pause).  So then, I say, “Uh, thank you?”  He laughs and says, “What??  Don’t you think you are beautiful??”

Now right here I need to pause from this story.  On a regular day, I of course think I am beautiful, I mean I am me aren’t I?  Nevertheless, every now and then I have one of those days.  You know the day when your clothes do not look right on you or you spot a pimple that no one else can see because it is tiny but to you it is a mountain on your forehead.  You know one of “THOSE” kinds of days!

Therefore, I replied, “What makes YOU say that I am beautiful when you have never seen or met me?”  His reply was interesting.  “I have visited your blog enough to know your mannerisms, to know that you love your family, to know that you love the Lord, to know that you feel strongly about right and wrong, to know that you love to laugh and I know that you are honest and speak up for what you believe to be right.  So yes, I feel that this makes me a pretty good judge of your character.  Therefore you are BEAUTIFUL!

I had to thank him for getting my perspective back in order!  Beauty is so much more than looks, clothes, hair, & makeup.  Beauty is what comes from within!

Therefore, I ask you…  What makes YOU Beautiful?  What do your actions and mannerisms say about YOU?

That was awesome. We as women need to understand that our bodies are just the houses we live in. Painting it and dressing it up makes the house look nice, but for US to be beautiful we have to do something with the person who lives IN that house.
