Being a mother has taught me some new lessons about beauty. Sometimes beauty is...
...loving the natural look.
...sharing your lip balm.
...polishing little toes.
...and more than anything, remembering that what's on the outside is not nearly as important as what's on the inside.
When I tell my daughter that her fancy shoes do not make her a lady, but her kind words and actions do...
When I tell her that she is not a beautiful ballerina because of her tu-tu, but because of her grace and smiling attitude...
I am also reminding myself of those things.
I pray to be a good example for her of what is truly important in life, and what will stand the test of time.
