Today I am grateful for my body. My body is different than it used to be, but I think I appreciate it more now than I ever have before. Maybe because of this little fella:
It is incredible what my body has done! And I love it so much. Sure, it’s a little softer, a little saggier, and a little wider, but the beautiful stretch marks in my mid section remind me of the sacrifice my Savior made for me. And I am so grateful for them.
My body is strong. It is healthy. It functions properly. It is beautiful. Even at 20 pounds heavier than I used to be. I feel so blessed that I have made peace with my body after so many years of battling it. I know a lot of women who are still in that battle, and I don’t ever want to go back to that place. I feel great about myself as I am trying to slim up after having a baby, I don’t need to wait until I’m at my goal weight to feel great. I can feel beautiful during the journey. And I do. Because my incredible body has given me the greatest gift I could have ever been given. . .
