You are so Beautiful

I stumbled across the Operation Beautiful site recently. As you can read on their website, the purpose of Operation Beautiful is to post notes in public places so women can find them. It's a simple thing, but very powerful.

I was pregnant in the summer so I was constantly hot and sweaty and felt enormous. Normally summers are a time for running around on the ball diamond, diving in the sand at the volleyball courts and drinking with friends at barbecues. This past summer was a hot and sweaty one and I didn't play any sports or drink any drinks.

One night when I went to watch J play volleyball I went into the bathroom, because pregnant ladies ALWAYS have to pee! I closed the door and saw a note telling me that I was beautiful. I was feeling fat and sweaty but that note made me smile. I was growing life. I was beautiful!

Like I said, it's such a small thing, but those few words I read got through to me. I smiled about it the rest of the night.

I'm going to start doing this: making my own post-its with positive messages and leaving them places. You can too.
