"We bởi not love people because they are beautiful, but they seem beautiful khổng lồ us because we love them." This is one of the thoughts from this book. It is a wonderful thought taken one way và I can also see it as a way of saying, you're ugly, but because you are loved you're beautiful. I guess it has something lớn say either way.

What a darling story.... Despite being what most others would consider as plain or homely perhaps, this particular Mother was considered beautiful by her adoring 6 year old daughter...so precious! beauty is in the eye of the beholder indeed.
