With that being said, we should take our cue from flowers and just "be" beautiful.....
"Dress up to feed the chickens!" I want to be a woman of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity like the strong women in my family. It doesn't come to me as easily but I'm giving it my best shot!
Love to all of you,
"Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful." - Unknown

Beauty... is the shadow of God on the universe.
- Gabriel Mistral, Desolacion

Robin, you are the most authentic woman I know... Keep rising up to your personal challenges and becoming even more beautiful than you already are...

Wonderful words to embrace! "D" Magazine just named the 10 most beautiful women in Dallas. 8 of them are 25 or younger. The other two were 34 and 35 (ish). I would love to send your beautiful sentiment to the publishers, reminding them to look beyond the package and the pocketbook.

It seems the only people in the world who will fight to say that we women over 40 are beautiful are US!!! If we don't do it, no one else will! So, we must press on. Keep up the good work, Robin! Your words are so inspiring, not just to be beautiful, but to be a beautiful person.

...and Happy Thanksgiving to all our U.S. neighbours!

Hi Pearl,
Hope your Thanksgiving was full of love and yum! I have been wearing my lace overalls every day since I got them --- I might need several more pairs! LOL! I am addicted! I think I get more compliments on those overalls than all my other clothing combined.
Just thought you should know!
