KARA: "What inspires you?"
HOLLEEANN: "The kindness of others. A smile from a stranger. A child discovering something for the first time. My baby sister Meg, SHE is an Incredible Woman, best mommy I know, funny, smart, committed to her family. My husband and his patience and huge heart. My daughter and her ability to love...come what may."
KARA: "Share your beauty secrets with us! What do you do to stay healthy and happy? If you had one day all to yourself, what would you do?"
HOLLEEANN: "This question made me laugh. LOUD, from the gut, laughter.
I have NEVER felt LESS than beautiful in my life...not like I feel right now. My hair is way too long and gray right now in need of a cut and color..STAT! My skin is dry and flaky. I have lost weight in all the wrong places since I got sick. I could go on but let me just say this...it ain't cute people.
I DO have a beauty secret...I call it Paul. Yep, my hubz. He tells me everyday that I am beautiful. E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y...When I saw myself in the mirror, for the first time in a week while I was in the hospital, I cried. He looked at me and with all the love in his heart he said, "You are beautiful, you hear me? Beautiful!"
I believed him. Still do. Someone should figure out a way to bottle that kind of love."
