I read this today and thought it was appropriate for my blog and the way I've been feeling today. I could write a whole blog on this...and thought about it...but it is late and I am tired, so I will just let you read and let it mean what it means to you.
"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."

Love you all, keep praying and keep believing, and be REAL!
