So, I make it my life's work to always look for the beauty that may or may nor be shining on someone's face that day.
How extraordinary that I am now working in a salon where people come in with one look and leave with an entirely different one; new color, or a trim, or newly shaped brows or their weekly blow out. It's all about feeling good when you leave. Our entire reason for being is to make you FEEL beautiful.
BUT, there are times the clients make US feel beautiful; for instance, the ten year old who cut her hair for Locks of Love yesterday. With glowing eyes and a smile as wide as can be. Excited to feel her head weigh less while doing such a selfless act of kindness. THAT is beauty in it's highest form. I was honored to be a part of it.
Today, we will beautify a mom and her daughter; mom is getting married tonight. I have sparkling cider chilling in the fridge as I type. It's going to be a beautiful day.
I trust you will do your part to make it a beautiful place, dear readers. You make mine exquisitely so. xo
I didn't realize how well the lyics tied into Bella's update.
Shining like a summer rainbow
We are colors
We are bright
Today they are still in the park - they will see Rainbow Falls an 80' waterfall with a cave behind it believed to be the home of the goddess Hina. (Bella can run but she cannot hide from the woo-woo...) They will also explore Crater Rim Drive, walk through Thurston Lava Tube and end the night at the edge of the ocean where they will behold bright red lava flowing into the sea. I can't wait for THOSE pictures!
