“beautiful” is today’s Five Minute Friday prompt
How would you define it?
what comes to your mind?
I’m joining Lisa Jo Baker again today for five minutes of edit free, stress free fun!
funny how definitions change as I age
teens & twenties I would have defined “beautiful” as the world does
Barbie-like, rosy cheeks, 36-24-36
but today when I read the prompt “beautiful”
I instantly thought of my mother
of course I think she’s beautiful, she’s my mother. she’s Precious
but more than the fact that she is indeed an attractive woman
is her character
it’s what makes her a jewel.
she’s a living model of the Proverbs 31 woman
growing up my two sisters & I would hear daily
“Girls, pretty is, is pretty does”
character is eternal
physical beauty is but a vapor
So today if you were to ask me to define “beautiful”
I would tell you her name is Jan
I want to be just like her when I grow up
