This weeks question is....
How has motherhood taught you to let go?
Before I had children I had a tiny little perfect body. Now after all my sons I have a stretched out, drooping, not so tiny and perfect body. It took me a long time to accept the stretch marks that are covering about 80% of my body. I have worse stretch marks than anyone I have ever seen and after my first two sons were born the stretch marks bothered me so much. I used to hide them and never want to wear shorts or clothes where you could see my stretch marks.
One day I realized that God made me this way and I need to be happy with who I am and make the best of it. Now, the stretch marks are still there and they are still just as bad as they were before but, they don't bother me anymore. I wear shorts, low cut shirts, skirts and anything else that I want to wear and I don't think twice about the stretch marks.
Toot Your Horn Tuesday is a blog carnival created by Leah at A Silly Little Sparrow. If you want to Toot your horn along with the rest of us just click the button above.
I want to Toot about the great Christmas deals I found this morning at Kmart. I bought Christmas cards for $.35-55 a pack. I got ribbons and bows for around $.40 per pack. I got gift boxes for less than $.50 for 15 of them. I also got some presents for next Christmas for super cheap. I bought some coffee mug gift packs. I am so excited about these deals that I got :o)
