I first found this a few years ago and it still brings me to tears when I watch it. How would you describe yourself?
This post tells the story of 12 women helping a friend who was in constant pain by doing a selfless act of service that she could not do for herself.
“I love women. There is a universal bond between us that has it’s own language. We all package it differently, but deep down we understand that a great haircut or a few pieces of sea salted dark chocolate really can make us feel better, even if just temporarily.”

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.
I want it to be a refuge. A place for women to come to feel good about themselves and also where they could be encouraged to lift other women. A place for them to learn that they actually are raised higher when they lift each other higher. I personally believe that this is made more possible the closer that we come to God and by strengthening our relationship with Him, but I hope for this to be a place that encompasses people of all beliefs.
This my way of diffusing the mommy wars, the beauty wars, the weight wars, the gossip, the mean girls, the competition.
Come in and feel free.
