Beauty Is


...holding Gabby's hand
...soaking in the sunshine
...laughing at silly jokes
...recognizing blessings
...listening
...making discoveries
...sifting memories
...being as excited as she is as she learns how to read
...surviving bad days
...the smell of autumn
...the blue of her eyes
...releasing fear
...memorizing moments
...being her mother
...gratitude.

"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart." ~Kahlil Gibran
