Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. I look in the mirror and groan. My dh looks at me, gives me a hug and tells me I'm beautiful -- sometimes with words, sometimes with actions, sometimes both. I can look at a gloomy day and see a beautiful flower, a darling toddler, a couple at a nearby church coming out after their wedding ceremony and think that this is a beautiful day. I can listen to my grandbaby laugh, I can watch her 'run', I can play peek-a-boo with her and I know this is a beautiful day. And, I can see the sunshine, feel the warmth on my face and the newly green grass beneath my feet, and I can hear the brook gurgle through the park a few steps from my condo and I know it is a beautiful day. Yes, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. We can find that beauty even on our darkest days if we open our senses to more than that which is dragging us down. Have a beautiful day!
