I don't think I know anyone that thinks of themselves as beautiful.  Sure, some may think there are days when things come together and they look OK, but beautiful?  Nope, can't think of one.

I spend a lot of time on Facebook.  I keep up with my kids and family and some of my friends that I just don't get to see very often. So when one of my best friends challenged me to find 5 pictures of myself that I feel beautiful in, I really had to think about whether I really wanted to do that.  First of all, how do you find and choose those pictures?

What makes me feel beautiful? I think the first thing that I look for when I see beautiful is happy eyes. Eyes, they say are the windows to the soul, so if my eyes are happy, then I feel like I look my best.  My family makes me happy.

These are the 5 pictures that I chose as my 'beautiful' pictures.  I have to tell you that after I chose them, I just sat and cried.  It was so much harder that I ever thought it would be to look at myself as beautiful.  Maybe we should all do that more often.
