  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

Shallow Hal’s

People are so judgemental.  I recently chatted with a gentleman online who said he liked what I had to say, and thought I was “cute” when he saw a picture of me.  But when he saw a second photo of me, where my hair was a bit messed up from a long crazy day of being a mother, friend, etc… he sent me an email saying that I had the “makings of a beautiful woman”, and he was sorry but he couldn’t talk to me anymore.

I don’t have the “makings of a beautiful woman”…I AM A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!  I refer back to my quote of the other day….I will fight tooth and nail to be myself in a world where everyone is trying to make me something else that fits their picture or preconceived notion of me.

I am and never have been a “trophy woman”.  I don’t wear make up except for on special occassions due to eczema, but that shouldn’t matter. I don’t spend time in the morning blow drying my hair and primping because 5 minutes after I do it would be a mess from being a mom and working woman, but that shouldn’t matter.

I have a good heart, a loving soul and care about the people in my life, THAT is what matters.  So bye bye Shallow Hal, hope you find that trophy woman that will make you happy.  I am glad I never actually met you.

Be Blessed!  I know I am !!!!!!
