I don't know about you but I think every girl wants to look beautiful especially when she is around the guy she likes. If we know we'll see him that day we changed a couple of times to find THE outfit that will be appropriate...yet make us look beautiful. We fix our hair just so, fiying it a couple times to make it sit perfect. Maybe we add a little makeup and then look at ourselves in the mirror. We look at ourselves from the left side...then the right side and if we have a flowy dress we twirl in a circle. We smile at ourselves in the mirror to practice that smile for later....what do we do it for? A guy. Yeah. Then the question is: Does he notice?
Well one Sunday morning in the beginning of Patrick and my courtship I was getting ready and even wore a dress which is Patrick's favorite but when it came to fixing my hair it just seemed like I couldn't get it to work. I tried several times but knowing I had to leave for church soon I ended up just having to put it up. I felt so ugly. For one, I used to hate wearing dresses and secondly I don't really like to wear my hair up... so it felt like a bad day. When my mom asked me what was wrong I told her that nothing seemed to be working and she just smiled and said that Patrick would think I looked beautiful anyway.
That Sunday when I woke up I decided that I was going to tell Iris just how beautiful she looked. She always looked beautiful to me but I had never told her face to face. It didn't matter to me what she was wearing I knew she was beautiful and wanted to tell her so today. While I was at church that morning I kept looking for an opportunity to tell her. I didn't want to embarrass her in front of lots of people so I kept waiting for a chance to tell her with less people around. Finally, when most of the people were gone and we were heading out the door, I turned to Iris and told her how beautiful she looked today. My heart was thumping and for some reason I was nervous. Iris blushed, said thank you and didn't talk to me for the rest of the morning.
I did not expect Patrick to say that and if you have read any of our previous stories you know how weird I acted and how nervous I felt around Patrick. ☺ When I heard those wonderful words from the man I was in love with I felt sooooooo happy but really didn't know how to act. The thousands of butterflies that went through my stomach almost made me feel sick. I didn't want to look at Patrick after that because I felt so embarrissed but I can tell you that the rest of the day I didn't think of anything else except the four words from my man "You look beautiful today."
Wish you all a happy Sunday and be sure to look beautiful! ☺
