I heard the song tonight, You are Beautiful in my Eyes, and have been humming it for the last few hours.
I can clearly remember moments when my friends or family have affirmed my beauty. Sometimes the words were congruent with where I was at and I felt beautiful. More often, it has spoken to what others may see or experience when I am not feeling it so much.
I am curious tonight how often I take the time to affirm someone’s beauty (or handsomeness). I really want my nieces and nephews to fully embrace that their strength and tenderness, their beauty and their handsomeness come from the core of who they are.
I want to be an aunt, a friend or a family member who is taking time to see, appreciate, embrace and celebrate strength and tenderness, beauty and handsomeness.
How about you, who would be blessed to hear you say the words….you are beautiful in my eyes!
