Another peculiarity of mankind is how a special occasion can make a loved one look more beautiful to their partner than they may appear on other occasions; perhaps seeing the untold happiness on a mother's face who has just given birth to a much wanted child ideally represents this assertion. There are insufficient stars in the heavens to match that glow of beautiful light radiating from the mother's inner happiness.
I know there have been occasions in my life when the loved one I have been with appears to have radiated more beauty than I have seen them emit previously. It may have been as the result of a new dress they were wearing or the different way they have arranged their hair etc.
Indeed, I would go so far as to say, behind every look is a beauty to be found; an untold story worthy of understanding and appreciation that lights up the intrinsic softness of the skin, the increased warmth of the heart and which is capable of glimpsing unfathomable depths of the soul. This is what I call a 'Cinderella moment' that reserves itself for special occasions and special nights and days of the year that enables one's eyes to see anew without a shadow of imperfection.
I recall seeing such beauty on the first night I knew for certain how much I loved my wife, Sheila, and again on the morning of our wedding when even the briskness of a November climate could not steal the beauty of unmistakable love and happiness that filled Sheila's face. I knew then that whenever I wanted to see, feel, taste and know beauty, that Sheila was my favourite place to go.
Love and peace. Bill xxx
