Lauren, I saw your interview on the TODAY show at the Olympics! Just wntaed to say how lovely you look and how beautiful you are. I think about you every day. For months, I’ve been trying to think of something to say that would help you look forward to your life ahead and be excited about your opportunities. Well, I’m going to share what I’ve come up with, and please try to keep an open mind!You know fashion is not always about functionality. Just take a look at women’s footwear through the ages! Now, how are we supposed to get anywhere fast in 6-inch spike heels? You now have a startling freedom to accessorize your image without being constrained to looking just like other women! Think about some iconic figures in classic literature, the Phantom of the Opera, for example. What are some new unusual and flashy ways you can depict a woman’s face and hands? Fashion is supposed to inspire. Once again, we are looking at space exploration and possibly travel to other planets. In an unfamiliar environment, as human beings, we adapt to new demands placed on us. How can you represent that visually with accessories that other women can’t wear? I will be watching to see what you are wearing on your face and hands. Also, on a more serious note: Lauren, there is so much suffering in the celebrity world that most of the rest of us can’t see. With the infirmity you bear each day that you can’t hide, you bring comfort to others. The serenity, grace and understanding I can see now on your face since your accident isn’t shared by other lovely women your age anywhere on Earth. You have really become a gem. Please continue to let our Lord work in your life.My best to you, God bless you.
