There is a "Mormon-Ad" from when I was a teenager that had a single daisy in a vase with a bunch of roses. It read at the bottom, "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful." I have often thought of that ad and tried to find beauty in everything around me... Not just the traditional things we think of as beautiful, but the things often not associated with beauty. I found beauty in these old, drying up weeds up the canyon last fall. They are their own kind of beautiful, aren't they?
