Beauty.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

“To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.” – Victoria Moran

“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” – Khalil Gibran

“When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.” – Lisa Unger

  • Those lights look amazing! Reminds me of when my parents used to live in Florida, and on Christmas Eve everyone would line their drives with candles and lanterns to show Father Christmas the way into their houses!

      Hi Chrissie,it’s so good to “see” you. I’ve always loved how romantic these luminarias or farlitos look; it’s such a lovely thing to do at Christmas or anytime. Big virtual hug and lots of chop kisses for Dixie and Tilly!
