Ugly?



















There is a rip in our leather couch. It came that way. The kids jumped on it. It grew. Big. After repeated scolding and correction of the most convincing kind, Janie asked, "Why don't you like the hole?"

"Because it is ugly. Ugly, ugly, UGLY!!" Yes, one of my more articulate and sensitive moments.

"Oh, what's ugly?"

Imagine, a world without ugly.

  1. Oh a world without ugly--I have to think about that.........so ugly must not be a moral question, right?

  3. Love this post... I was sharing this with Chris and a couple of days later we were talking about a Winnie the Pooh clip that we always skip over because we think it could be scary for Katie. However, we missed our cue this day and then she wanted to watch it again. We thought she doesn't even know what scary is... Imagine a world without scary or ugly, know that is Heaven.
