Lovely and Amazing

Dedicated to women who look in the mirror and second guess what they see.       Thanks to modern medicine women can now have their tummies tucked, their breasts augmented, their lips puffed and their wrinkles erased.  Add a splash of hair color, a new hairdo and an application of makeup and you gals look gorgeous!       Perhaps the greatest imperfection we have is the way that we see each other!       While stopped at traffic light this morning, I glanced over the the car next to mine. I noticed the female driver staring in her mirror, applying a layer of makeup, painting her her lips, and fixing her hair. In that 30 second interval she made a complete transformation. The light turned green and she gave herself one last look in the mirror and smiled with approval.       Little did she realize that she was facing the East. The first morning rays of light were streaming in. In that pure light that only our Creator could have provided, I could see the softness of her feminine skin, the sensousness of her lips illuminated, and the silkyness of hair, highlighted. In that pure stream of light, she looked so lovely and amazing!       The next time you second guess yourself, I urge you step outside beneath a moonlight night and allow the moonbeams to circle your head and imagine this secret admiration that has been made just for you!   Yes, you are, so lovely and amazing!~~~~~~~~~~~Marc :)

Marc,

There are men we know, and then there are the "true gentlemen" of this world. You, my friend, are a true gentleman. It's my pleasure and good fortune to have discovered you.

Thank you, for your kind regard of those of my gender.

Marc, I recently applied my make-up at a traffic light, and when I finished I looked over to the car next to me, and there was this very nice man watching me.  He smiled and gave me a thumbs up!  I believed the truth in his smile more than I believed the mirror, which is so subjective to my ideas of self.  A smile from a man, something like your entry here, goes a very long way.  Happy holidays, Wendy

This private interaction (ritual?) is interesting on many levels.  Beauty, perception, standards, society's expectations, habits, etc.  You've done an outstanding job at pointing out that what's most important is what's on the inside.  Thank you for sharing your beauty and warmth!
