God gave me a wonderful gift today.  I was looking in the mirror, noticing the wrinkles and blemishes and kind of, sort of…wishing I was beautiful.  When I look in the mirror, I see someone whom I consider “medium,” which has never bothered me.  I have never thought that comparison to others serves any good purpose.  But, just for a few minutes, I wondered who I would want to look like, if I had a magic wand.  The two people that came to mind were Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon, not only because of their beauty but especially because of their senses of humor.

Then something inside of me (which I believe was a very quiet message from God – no audible voice; don’t freak out that I am hallucinating…)  The message was, “I love you just as you are, and through my eyes, you are drop dead gorgeous.  I created you to be who you are, my sweet, beautiful daughter, whom I have adored since the moment you were conceived.  Never forget that, no matter what.”
