This past weekend, my sweetheart spoiled me by taking me shopping. After I got home, it dawned on me that unlike my standard wardrobe of a sweatshirt and jeans, he makes a point to buy me dresses and skirts. Not just dresses, but those that flatter my figure and look fabulous!
I like that feeling. I feel feminine, cared for, and safe. It takes a strong, true man to be able to bring those feelings out in a woman without demeaning or subjugating her to a lesser position. He has no compunction whatsoever about publicly showing his affection and walking in his arm feels wonderful!
It has been a long time since someone cared for me in such a way. I have realized, also, that the woman I see in the mirror still is not the one others see. I am working on it...and as I travel that path, I will be the one in the fabulous dress and heels!!
Look in your mirror today. That woman looking back? She is kind, loving, and incredible! Always remember that!
