DO YOU KNOW HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE?

“Do you know how beautiful you are?” her grandma loved to say

“In fact”, she would continue, “you get more beautiful every day.”

 

“Grandma,” she said to her one day while feeling a little blue…

“You keep saying that I’m beautiful…but I don’t think it’s true.”

 

“I look in the mirror and try to see the beauty that you see…

But I don’t see a beautiful girl…all I see…is me.”

 

“Beauty is a funny thing,” her grandma said “you have to look at it differently…

because a person’s beauty…your true beauty…lies in what other people see.”

 

If you see the good in others you’ll be pleasantly surprised

They will say, I don’t know what its about her 

but she has the most beautiful eyes.

 

If you speak kind words to others…in all your relationships

They will say, I don’t know what it is about her

but she has the most beautiful lips.

 

If you listen with respect and honesty 

as people express their joys, their hopes, their fears…

They will say, I don’t know what it is about her 

but she has the most beautiful ears.

 

If your touch is kind and gentle wherever it may land

They will say, I don’t know what it is about her

but she has the most beautiful hands.

 

If your smile makes others happy…even for a little while…

They will say, I don’t know what it is about her

but she has the most beautiful smile.

 

If you walk knowing you have friends and family who love you…

oh how everyone will talk

They will say, I don’t know what it is about her

but she has the most beautiful walk.

 

She was thinking of these words at her grandma’s funeral 

when so many people came up to her to say…

I don’t know what it was about your grandma

 

but she got more beautiful every day.
