saying is believing.
i watched this commercial the other night on YouTube (alright, i'm a little addicted), and it made me cry. weep, actually, but then...
i weep...but! i also laugh really really loudly so it all balances out in the end.
i just rec'd these pictures of my 7-year old niece, Madison Jane, BEAMING with her big ol' bloody, gap tooth smile...
she is simply joy joy joy incarnate.
to think that she could ever find herself less than perfect (and i mean perfectly imperfect like those bumpy though succulent apples you get from the orchard not the shiny ones from the Super Wal-Mart that taste like terrycloth soaked in apple juice), makes me downright depressed.
fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, boyfriends, husbands...tell the little girls (and the big ones too) in your life how beautiful they are. no, it shouldn't matter, but oh, goddammit, it does.
