  1. I love ME because I have learned that I AM LOVABLE
    with all of my wrinkles, extra pounds, being disorganized, sometimes late, and directionally impaired because: I am funny, attractive, have a great smile, pretty blue eyes, great long legs, and a winning personality. I am kind to strangers, old folks, and animals. I am intelligent & creative!!!
    GO G!!!
