During lunch duty on Thursday, one of the fourth grade students looked up at me while I was opening her cup of fruit and said, "Mrs. Searls, you're beautiful." I was slightly taken aback, but managed to thank her as graciously as I could, and thought to myself, "I wonder what she wants." Accepting compliments on my looks has always felt uncomfortable because I have never, ever, EVER considered myself to be a pretty person. I have always thought my nose was way too big, my teeth have too many gaps, my eyelashes are short and thin, oh the list could go on and on. However, I do think I made pretty girls. My daughters are beautiful and my granddaughters are breathtaking.
Here's the proof:
|Becca and Leslie turn another year prettier...|
|My beautiful daughters...|
|Even when they act silly they manage to look great...|
|Sisters... forever friends|
|My favorite baby picture of Maggie Lyn...|
|My favorite baby picture of Sophie Lyn...|
|Maggie Lyn and Sophie Lyn off to the Daddy Daughter Dance...|
Aren't they all gorgeous?
