Perfectly Imperfect, Beautifully Flawed

Celebrating the perfect in every woman

There comes a day you just are.
Pounds here,
wrinkles there,
not perfect,
leggings and wine,
but perfectly wonderful.

You finally realize today,
who you were is who you will never be again,
but for the first time who you are is enough,
and the past can rest.

Life is today;
chasing a dream of youth is lost to a mirror of reality.
You stand naked,
staring at what you are,
loving the journey.

Kids,
divorce,
stress,
loss,
all combined to leave you perfectly imperfect,
beautifully flawed,
worn by life into a work of beauty.

Grab a rose;
open the champagne.
Run through the house naked with that rose in your teeth.
Terrorize the kids,
shock the future ex-spouse,
you need to dance.

Today you are wonderful.
Today you celebrate the perfect woman.
Today you celebrate you.
