Everyone is talking about Michelle Obama's speech last night at the DNC.  It was powerful, moving and resonated with so many people.  I could definitely relate to her memories of early family life with Barack when they had very little money and found it hard to make the bills.  So many of us in this country have fallen on hard times this past few years.  Without the support of friends and family I'm not sure if my husband and I would have made it.  Michelle spoke about being true to yourself and that it's ok to ask for help if you need it.  That Barack is the same person only better because of the challenges he has had to face as president.  All of us can rise to any occasion and meet it if we honor and allow ourselves to do so.  I always speak of looking in the mirror and finding something you "like" and play that up.  Not diminishing ourselves.  On the lighter side, Michelle looked flawless.  Her makeup was done to perfection.  Beautiful, clean skin and light eyes.  She glowed from the inside out.  Her hair was soft and feminine with just a bit of pizzaz in the side flip. And her dress was understated and elegant.  She exuded a confidence and inner beauty that cannot be bought.  Simple and beautiful!
