A Beautiful Choice

I just read a saying at https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/I-stop-for-suffering/263956387017672?sk=photos_stream that I liked and thought you might too:

“It’s up to you to find beauty in the ugliest days.”

When I read it, this popped into my head:

A Beautiful Choice

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder
The same place that beauty is found
Why focus on the ugly
When beauty is all around?

–Russ Towne
