In my time in Ohio I have noticed a very funny thing about people. I have been wondering when I might make some friends. What I didn't notice was that I already had. They just weren't like my friends in Sterling (meaning, 20 somethings single, or young married couples). Another things that I have noticed is that people who aren't as good looking as society thinks they should be, sometimes make the nicest friends. I won't mention names or specifics but one lady that I have met is just the sweetest person ever. She isn't good looking by the world's standards (overweight, facial hair, etc). She asks about my life and watches out for me. She isn't attractive or someone of high importance but my life has been made better through the brief interaction we have had. She is the person that I wish I were like, not the skinny blonde, with whom I have contact, who is consistently rude and doesn't have time to even say hello. So, why do I, as a woman, spend so much time pursuing outward beauty, because in my experience that is NOT at all what counts! I realize that this may be a bit of a deep subject for this early in the morning and that I just may be slow in this discovery. Some of the most beautiful people I know are ugly by the world's standards.
