Crazy I know, but it’s the pain I’ve ENDURED in my life that has made me beautiful. It’s the concept of the caterpillar and the butterfly. The cocoon has to be a painful place…imagine what’s it’s like to go through a complete metamorphosis…but once that period is over, that caterpillar has become a beautiful, colorful, bright butterfly. Once when I was going through a really tough period in my life a co-worker complimented me on how wonderful I looked. When I briefly told him about the pain I was in, his response was.” Wow, pain looks really good on you. It sorta makes you glow!” When I think about his words…I realized it is always during times of pain, that God’s glory, mercy and grace cover me the most. Though HE’s ALWAYS there…it’s during those times of struggle that HIS presence is most known…and that is what makes me beautiful.

“I think when I became a Mother is when I truly became beautiful. There’s nothing like 24 hours of labor and bringing a life into this world that makes you see TRUE beauty!! Knowing that I am raising good people (no matter what my numeric size) means I am not only beautiful, but leaving beauty in the world – through my children.”
