You are more beautiful today…

I was super elated to find wedding pictures tucked away while cleaning out some drawers.  Immediately, when I saw myself, I noticed several things:  I was much thinner, much toner, much younger, and much prettier.  I did enjoy looking at other family members to see how much everyone has changed.  Do  you notice something, though, when you look at a…
