beauty is necessary in our lives as is goodness. how can we live our lives without seeing the beautiful smile of a little child or the softness of a velvet flower. our hearts are akin to the goodness that is born in all things and all people that are beautiful. i look for beauty everywhere and and in everyone. i hope for goodness to shine through each heart and especially in my own, for i cannot share beauty and goodness if i can't find it in myself, first.
