This is Beautiful You

Finally, my favorite post of the week! Every Sunday morning I take some of the photos that you have uploaded to the Facebook wall, and I post them here. I love This is Beautiful You because it gives me (and everybody else) an incredible glimpse of who we all are. It puts a face on the awesome people coming here. It gives us a beautiful idea of the uniqueness and diversity of the followers here at SDL. More than anything, it shows all of us just how beautiful we each can be.

Anyway, thank you for sharing a small part of yourselves. It’s my honor to put the spotlight on you today. This is beautiful you.

The one of the family with the pittie. I have a boy that looks just like that dog. Makes me want to get off work so I can go home and snuggle my babies!! (Doggies but they are MY babies)

Wow, Sharkula. I love you, too, and that earned a big sloppy wet one when I see you next week. And not just from T. ;) You are beautiful, too.

One of my Most Beautiful Friends is Candy Cooper McDowall. She exemplifies what it means to be a grateful person and a good Christian. Her words and her spirit have helped heal me of my years of distrust and contempt of Christianity, which were deep and vitriolic. Through her I have learned to heed my own advice and not generalize and judge others based on religious preference. I love you Candy. You are always so positive and uplifting, often in the face of such tragedy. You are beautiful!

HAH! I didn't think when I uploaded that pic that it would be going into a 'Beautiful You' post. I laughed SO hard when I saw that crazy-face here! What's really weird is that I was just wondering when those pix were going up because I finally found the BEST one. Perhaps I'll still scan & send. :) As for the others, my faves are the Pibble-love, the stairs, and shark belly.

I loved the little boy hanging off the train with his tongue sticking out while mom and his sister are all cuddled in looking sweet.  Sure highlights the different personalities.

Vicky Owens is beautiful. She is a strong vivacious woman, could talk under water with a mouth full of marbles ;) but has a wonderful heart. She amazes me with how strong she has been with her illness, being a single Mum and working with special need children even though it almost kills her to get up out if bed some days. Here's to you Vicky.

Mallory Harkins is a beautiful person! She's had more problems to deal with in the past two months than most people deal with in years! And she's slowly struggling through with integrity and grace. I'm proud to call her my friend. Love you!

The pregnant lady and shark was too funny. Some future sibling was having a good time with Mom. :}

Also, my mom Barb Waite . Her selflessness as a mother makes her the most beautiful! She spent her life working her tail off to provide for us, and now though we are all grown, she is still there for us. She is so thoughtful, and generous, which makes her a very beautiful person!

Kim Mayhew is beautiful, strong, and so brave! Over the last year or so I have gotten to know this Internet friend. Life has thrown so much at her, in such a short time, and she somehow manages to keep going with that strong spirit intact. Such an inspiration!

Kate Crawford, is a beautiful person. life has not been to kind to her 4 times over with each child she's had, one a precious angel, yet she continued to find the wonders in life and share life's joys with others. Now, once again, life has been quite unkind. And still, as she faces cancer's ugliness, she tries hard to see the positive. She is an inspiration and I admire her deeply!

There are way to many for me to say why individually. But they are the best support group that a person could have. Julia, Jennifer, Georgia, Christina and the rest of their entourage who love me and are willing to fight for me to the ends of the earth!

Cassie Taylor is the most amazing friend a girl could have! Although we only met a few years ago I feel like I've known her my entire life. She has supported me through some of the roughest times I've ever experienced and although we now don't see each other as often as we'd like we can pick up right where we left off. Every person should have a friend as special as she is. I am sooooooo ectremely blessed to have her in my life.

@Arynn - I was checking out my Livefyre profile & was reminded of this. My OCD-tendencies make me want to update. LoL! After longing for it after a few years I finally said "OH YES, I'm doing it again" & brought my pink back! It's a lil different now though.. feel free to check my Fb button :)
