My Beauty

Motherhood Moments

It’s a funny thing, beauty. You know what they say: it’s in the eye of the beholder. But there are things on which pretty much everybody agrees.

There’s this kind of beauty…

 …and there’s this…

…and then there’s this:

She’s not beautiful in a way that any age of humanity—jazz, gilded or Twitter—would idealize. Her features are a little squashed, her eyes slightly crossed, her gait more than a bit ungainly.

And yet she is beautiful. And that’s not just a parent’s prejudice talking. There’s this beauty:

…and this…

…and this…

But most of all, she is beautiful…simply because she is. Because someone up there thought she had something to offer to the world, and sent her down here.

    It’s most definitely not a parent’s prejudice. I remember when I first visited your blog after seeing the link on Christian’s Facebook page. I haven’t seen Christian in years, and thus, had never seen your children. As soon as I saw a picture of her, I stopped scrolling instantly and just stared. I was overcome by how gorgeous she was. I so enjoy looking at the photos you post of her! She’s cute and beautiful all wrapped into one!

    Oh, you had to put Ekaterina! I so want to borrow that book by her that you have again. But, the time to read it just isn’t here!
