Beautifully done. You shared a real truth and insight and correlated it with a typical mirror day for women so that it would appeal to both sexes. I'd paint up the beginning and end a little more to make it all awesome.

Wow -- you hit home with this one! That conversation could have been transcribed from one here in my home tonight. As one who suffers with fibromyalgia I understand the emotion of this piece all too well. Well done! :) God bless!

"Blood colored glasses" is a stunningly profound phrase. This is a masterpiece.
AWESOME TITLE! Rose-colored glasses are nothing compared to blood-colored glasses!! Wow, that's profound.

My favorite part about ugliness: "Countless times I, me, all on my own, have needlessly and wrongfully talked myself out of blessed closeness with Him. All because I felt that I was unworthy- that somehow my sins and disobedience had made me less attractive- no just plain ugly- to Him."
