Let the sun shine in!

From across the yard I spotted this beacon of light and ran to get my camera.

It was only when I looked at the picture on my computer screen that I noticed it was mud-spattered and slightly torn.

Too perfect?
It didn't change my opinion of how beautiful it was, but I reconsidered putting it on my blog.

Because, we prefer pictures of perfection, don't we?

Look more closely at my flawed daffodil.  It has a more authentic glow to it, don't you think?

In real life, we are all a combination of beauty and flaws.  We may get mud-spattered and torn, but this doesn't diminish our ability to be a beacon of light to ourselves and others!

We come to love
not by finding a perfect person,
but by learning to see
an imperfect person
