The best feeling in the world is when you child just comes up to you and lays their head in your lap, for no other reason but just because. -Marlee MatlinIt's not always easy to make peace with my body. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, but I am always making an effort.
Two days ago I had no trouble at all, when my little love lay her head to rest on my very comfy stomach. Some days I don't regret my shape at all.
I love the softness of this photo, it makes me feel more gentle to myself and to my little girl. And that is an immeasurable gift in a culture that usually informs me that I'm a failure and a slob for being the size I am.
But now when I'm having a rough day, I will look at this picture again and remember how it felt.
