We took a little rest from packing today to recharge.  It was just what we all needed.  I feel totally refreshed.

I looked through the pictures tonight and something struck me.

That overwhelming burst of love for these people.  That genuine happy.

And even though I am several feet in front of the others at an odd angle, I don’t even care.  A year ago, I would have deleted that picture over ridiculous body-image issues that truly distort what is real.

I just feel happy.  I’ve changed.  I’ve stopped seeing those stupid things so much and now I see a soft belly that comforts many children in just the right place when they need a hug and strong legs that hike them through the mountains.  I see a truly happy family.  A kind husband and vibrant daughters and a perfect fit in us all.

Now back to packing.
