What is beautiful…

I have a problem with the popular concept of what is beautiful.
If our looks don’t quite conform to what the media
proclaims is beautiful then are we ugly?

Three hands, three generations, three places in life.
A babies hand.
Dimples, smooth, no lines, scars, wrinkles or knots.
Just beginning with a little history, a little story.
A mother’s hand.
Strong, some lines, wrinkles, rough, no dimples.
In the middle with some history, some stories.
A grandmother’s hand.
Soft, knots, bulging veins, wrinkles, and darkened skin.
Near the end with lots of history and stories.

Which hand is beautiful?
Look beyond what your eyes see and look with your heart.
Are they not all beautiful?

  1. Patricia, sorry it took me so long to get here. This is a beautiful piece of beautiful. Hands tell so much about a person, I think. Have you seen a younger person with old hands? I think that means something, as well. This is just a lovely read.

    1. Thank you Val. I do think our hands tell our story. And no apologies needed…visit when there is time. The door is always open.

  2. You speak the truth, with a wise heart. Beauty is so much more that what the media dictates. It is found everywhere, in all stages of life, and in all creations.

    1. I get so upset when I see what is shown to be beauty in the media. It is such a false picture and so many see it as truth. I could go on a rant!

  3. “Look beyond what your eyes see and look with your heart”… this needs to be posted on everyone’s wall as a daily reminder! This was so beautifully written, Patricia – the simple truth, all are beautiful in their own way and time.

    1. Thank you, Josie. It is a simple truth that beauty abides in all of God’s creation. But we tend to make the simple complex. Silly peeps!
