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.
