In a time when I’m just feeling kind of blah and like weight is such a focus and a struggle, this really hit home for me. Someone posted it on facebook and I thought it was beautiful. What are your thoughts?
At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.
We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: “How amazing am I ?! “
Today I went swimming.
It was 99 degrees here.
And I hosed down my rooster who I thought might be too hot.
I fed my child peas and pudding and popcorn.
I was apparently on a P kick.
I ate Coconut Cream Pie ice cream for breakfast.
I have a sore throat. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I homeschooled my 5 year old.
We read Fancy Nancy.
And picked some green beans.
I froze zucchini for the winter.
And got a coupon text for a $1.99 Banana Split. Maybe my throat needs that too.
I shaved my legs with a dull razor because I didn’t want to get the floor wet.
And accidentally conditioned my hair twice.
I talked to my sister about her morning.
And rubbed my dog’s belly.
I vacuumed the carpet and swept the floor.
I didn’t make my bed.
I played bejeweled on facebook.
And tickled my daughter’s toes.
All part of a day in my life.
For several years now, on any given Sunday, if you had needed to find me there would have been one place to start…Borders. It was a little haven for me on Sundays while my husband and kids had some family time with his parents and siblings to just recharge for the week, find a comfy chair and read…whatever.
