I look at you in the mirror,
and contrary to what you may believe…
contrary to what others may have told you,

You are beautiful.

Your shoulders straight are beautiful.
Your breasts taut and proud are beautiful.
Your shape and curve are beautiful.
Your hair with color and shine is beautiful.
Your smile and the sparkle of your eyes are beautiful.
Your imperfections—created in God’s image
and plan are …beautiful.
