Yesterday I woke up and exercised with my wonderful husband. After my shower I went to the closet. As I sifted through my closet I had this desire to be beautiful that day. Instead of my typical t-shirt and jeans, I picked out a new outfit my mother-in-law had bought me. I put it on and then went to the bathroom. I put make-up on for the first time all week. Then, I heard from the other room...

"There's a new Mormon Message."

I went to our little living room. I stood there and watched the video "My New Life."

As soon as it was over I hurried to the bathroom again so that my husband wouldn't see my tears. I thought of Stephanie's story and felt sad. Sad that I have ever seen myself as NOT beautiful. Sad that I often take my life for granted.

I thought of my husband who always tells me
I'm beautiful...
I'm gorgeous...
I'm lovely...
I'm pretty...

What a wonderful man! He always sees what I sometimes can't. He has always seen me as my Heavenly Father sees me. He loves me with such a perfect love.

Today I went to Stephanie's blog. I read a few of her posts and was inspired by the joy she finds in the little things. She's not perfect. I'm not either. We have our bad days. We can't always be full of smiles and laughter, but when we remember the Savior and what he has done for us...when we exercise faith in Him, we can overcome all things. We can overcome those bad days.

I watched her video again today, too.

And cried again.

Then watched it again.

And cried again.

I came to this one conclusion.

I am the luckiest girl ever! I am a daughter of God!
