We are all beautiful!

Another non-stitching post... BUT - it occurred to me today...

We are ALL beautiful women!

Below is a picture taken this summer at our local street fest of:
my sister (left), 17 year old daughter (middle) and me (the short one on the right).

Under that... is my 10 year old daughter....

Under that... is my mom....

Seeing these, it occurred to me that no matter what shape, size, age, weight, color... we are all beautiful!

Don't believe what you see in magazines - it's fake and airbrushed.
Don't obsess over what you see on TV or in movies - they have plenty of paid employees just to make them look good.

We are REAL women!
And - dang - we look good - extra pounds, gray hair, wrinkles, cooked teeth and all!

Our differences (and similarities) and imperfections (and our beauty) are what make us special, unique! 
So very cool!

Here's to all of us womenfolk! We rock!

PS - This, by no means, means that men are any different! 
They, too, struggle with some of the same issues as women, and, 
they too are beautiful in their unique qualities as as well!

I absolutely agree! We all come in so many different shapes and makes me stop and think before complaining about something so silly.
You're gorgeous girl!!!
