7/52 of my self-portrait challenge
"You know, it feels kinda nice when a homeless meth addict tells you your beautiful."
I couldn't help but smile. Of course, it feels nice -- it doesn't matter who tells you you're beautiful, you know?
"Reminds me of when a precious 91-year-old told me I was the prettiest thing he'd seen. Found out later he was legally blind."
I laughed. But then I responded to both of them:
"There's your proof that beauty is more than just something you see. It's something you feel."
Don't you agree?

In other news, I've had a lovely week this week, one that began with a complete stranger paying me a compliment out of the blue -- a kindness for which I'm very grateful. And as always, you can see what else I'm grateful for this week on my gratitude blog over at Babble.
With that, have a great weekend, you beautiful people, you.
