Beautiful creation

Friend, why do weight issues bother us so?  Perhaps it has something to do with our cultural preferences for skinny chicks and buff dudes.  Or, maybe it's closer to home: for me, I have a tendency to be over-self-critical.  So, my propensity for comparing myself with others, whether I'm cognizant of the fact or not, gives me a poor personal image.  Past criticisms reverberate from the torrents of my mind when I least expect, let alone want, them.  And those never help.

It shouldn't be this way.  We all have talents and traits that make us beautiful creations!  You, friend, have the ability to do good, to help those in need, and to share a selfless smile or restorative encouragement to those God situates in your life.

A wide smile consistently spread across his face, Joey said to me: "Mommy, I think you're just the right size for you."  Regardless of the physical changes that happen throughout my lifetime, I know that my son will love me.  His smile radiates from his soul, not his face.  Friend, are there people like this in your life?  Those are the people who matter - those are the people who really care about you!


  1. Yep, for me, those people include you! You and Russ are raising a very wise little man. Give both your little men a hug from me.

  2. What a sweet boy.

    You are beautiful! You always have been and always will be.
