Being around children as often as I am has been a true learning experience. I may not be a young woman, however, I am finding out many things from this beautiful little people.

Life is not boring to me, it is not mundane. It is full of wonder, pleasing smells, awesome colors, beautiful creatures, and breathtaking moments. Children know how to enjoy and appreciate life.

This is what I have learn from children: I think there is a secret to enjoying life more that most people overlook. A hidden way to feel so much more full every single day and it hides in its deceptive simplicity. Itís this: Love every single living thing you find and see them all through wondering eyes. Appreciate the details, notice the colors and textures and imagine you are seeing it for the very first time. See things as new.

What wonderful beauty is all around us.

I never truly understood how much my mother touched other peoples' lives by the messages she sent them or the cards until she left this world. Everyday she would write someone or send a card. She has been gone for 17 years, yet a month does not go by that some stranger comes up to me and ask me if I am my mother's daughter (I look so much like her). Than I am told what a blessing she was in their life.

Wow, what a beauty legacy she left--the gift of love by helping others wither her kindness and words.

I pray that I can, like her, be a blessing to others. This quote reminds me of my mother: The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.- Albert Schweitzer

WooHoo, it's Friday; the perfect day to start liking your how you look! It really does not matter what size you are. So please stop listening to the media telling you that you have to be a size 0. Your dress size does determine who you are. Do not let them take the joy out of your life. What they tell you and say is not the truth. They have a hidden agenda which does not care about anyone but their wallet. Yet, we give the media so much power. It's time stop.

Now is the time to be happy with how you look. After all, you are God's masterpiece--100% made by Him. Now how can you NOT be beautiful? How can you NOT like how you look? God does not make anything unattractive.

I want you to know that you really are beautiful. You brighten my day and make me feel that I am special. Your inner beauty touches my life and I am so much better because of it. This my friend is what real beauty is, not a being a size 0.
