You are beauty.

The more I look at you, the more I see Him.

I mean, you.

His daughters each different.

Each one with your own beauty adding to the mosaic that is the human race.

You, with your pictures engraved on your skin, 
matching the soft amber of your eyes.

You, with your weathered cheeks and hands that have seen much life, 
and whose heart bursts with love and compassion because of it.

You, with your hands that never stop helping
and your tongue that never stops praising.

You. The way you mother your children.

Not perfectly, no.

But, with tenderness and a heart willing to say I'm sorry when needed.

You. Discovering anew the gifts within yourself.
You shine.

You make me laugh. 
My life has more joy because of the way your heart comes through those smiling words.

You remind me that there is good and beauty in the world.

You who,

light up in your own skin.
shine with the uniqueness that only you can.

You are beautiful, just the way you are.

Don't. ever. stop.
