Face in the mirror

On Facebook, pictures abound regarding this challenge of then and now. 'Challenges'. I laugh when I see them.

I could post a couple of pictures. Yes, I am a bit lumpier than I was years ago. I have a lot more white hair. The years have accumulated, and I show my age. And, I am beautiful.

Don't take that the wrong way. I can look in the mirror and see what could be there, but instead I see a woman who has had many blessings in her life. I see a woman who has felt deep pain and sadness. I see a woman who has loved and lost and loved again. I like that woman. Inside her are memories preserved, love of family that makes her glow, a heart that she wears on her sleeve and is ready to share it with anyone she meets. Yep, she is a pretty good looking lady.

I don't need a challenge. My life has been a challenge. I am perfect and getting more perfect all the time.
