We tried to win the Jenny sized Race Car by buying our share of raffle tickets, but it looks like we'll have to settle for this picture of it instead.

"Beautiful" by Atlanta Marie Carrera

"Beautiful" by Atlanta Marie Carrera

The rising sun is beautiful
     because it makes you smile
          which is beautiful.

The rainbow’s rays are beautiful
     because your eyes light up
          which is beautiful.
When a bird soars high, it’s beautiful
     because your spirit gasps
          which is beautiful.
When a flower blooms, it’s beautiful
     because you breathe its scent
          which is beautiful.

A newborn child is beautiful
     because your heart is filled
          which is beautiful.

How you see the world is beautiful
     because the soul within
          is beautiful.
