  1. I love number 9. We’re All More Beautiful Than We Realize

    It made me cry. Seeing the realization on the faces of those women as they looked at the drawings…

    I wish that my Mom could have seen that before she passed away. It’s something that I needed to see as well, but she had struggled with her weight after having 3 kids and was really hard on herself about it. She was always beautiful though, no matter how big she was. That woman had killer legs too! I wish that I had inherited them. 🙂

    I just wish that she could have seen herself the way the rest of us did. She was gorgeous. I even inadvertently did things all my life to make myself look more like her and didn’t realize it until after she was gone, like plucking my eyebrows so that they look like her’s. She would randomly wonder why I pluck my eyebrows the way I do and would say that I had perfect eyebrows before. I always just said I don’t know. Then, not long ago, I realized that I had plucked them to look like her eyebrows. I think that she would have been flattered if I had realized sooner and told her that.
