I'm thinking here of those ladies - you know the ones, the ones who never make it to the salon often enough, wear clothes they've had for years, choose comfort over fashion - instead they get up early every day and make sure everyone else has enough to eat and clothes to wear, they take care of that hurting neighbor, they don't forget important days and events in the lives of others, and they always have time and energy for someone who needs a listening ear.
Such ladies are very common in a sense, they are found all over and you likely don't notice them. But, in a greater sense, they are rare and precious and bring beauty to our lives.
