beautiful horsebeautiful sign Everyone has a different definition of the word beautiful. It is not only applicable to people, but also to nature, food, and even animals.  What may appear beautiful to one person can be unattractive to someone else.  Lately, on Facebook, a few females have posted their pictures.  They have been told they were ugly, unattractive, anything but beautiful.  The women were missing limbs, yet they were still really beautiful.  There have also been postings of down syndrome children.  They are so gorgeous and full of love, it is impossible to imagine individuals calling them names.  What is wrong with people not seeing the true beauty of children and adults?  Just because they have a physical difference, doesn’t mean that they aren’t gorgeous.  I once worked with a man for one and one half years before I notice he was missing three fingers.  I may have never noticed except for the fact he was doing something that clearly showed his missing fingers.  It is appalling that people criticize individuals with handicaps especially children.  The words are painful and only remind the individuals of their difficulties.  If no one ever criticized them, they might never think that there was anything wrong or that they were considered by some to be ugly.  It’s a sad state of affairs that individuals think that way.  Most beautiful people are because whom they are on the inside.  They always have a smile or kind word for others.  It only takes a moment to brighten someone’s day.  If a person holds a door for you besides saying thank you, you could add, “You must have a wonderful mother as she has given you such good manners.” Do you have any idea how much that cheers people and suddenly they have a wonderful smile on their faces? Appreciation and the wonder of nature in all its splendor  are truly beautiful to most individuals.  However, there are people who hate the outdoors, and can’t see the stunning attributes of the grass, flowers, sky, moon, and even all the various types of trees.  It’s a shame as they are missing wonderful memories of beautiful places.  The illustrations in the Good Gus Series are indeed beautiful.  They light up a child’s face when they see the pictures.  If the so call beautiful heirs are making your life miserable, tell them to find a hobby while you read “Misplaced Trust” at maecharlesbooks.com.
