I'm feeling ugly...

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.  
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives,... the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

Yeah, right...Audrey.  I am feeling ugly...from my head to my toes.  Even my deep blue eyes aren't pretty today.  I bet if you pulled my soul out of my throat...it would be pretty hard to look at.
 
It's been a "this is going to be a good life lesson" weekend for my kid and I hate those.  I like days when everything is calm and bright and sunny.  Not how things went. 
 
We'll get over all of it.  He's already over it.  I, on the other hand, am not.  I am still stinging from the impact.  But can I tell you how proud I am?  I hope you said yes because I am going to anyway...it's my blog.  I have a young man with integrity and character and who can accept defeat with grace and beauty.  He is nothing like his mother!  Thank God!
 
We'll tawk tommorrow...
Maybe I will look better!
I love you all and I hope you still love me,
Terry

There is beauty in the way you handle less than optimal situations...gracefully. You are a beautiful example of authenticity. And that is beyond beautiful.

No, no.no......you could not be ugly if you tried. The words that you write reveal you as beautiful clear through.
That is the wonderful thing about blogging. Without the superficial visual distractions, the real you is exposed in your thoughts and the way you express them.

Hope you feel as beautiful as you are soon.

I call it the FUDS (fat, ugly, dumb) and I felt it periodically even when I was a gorgeous teenager. Sigh. I feel it, now, almost perpetually.
