Body Love? Eyes of Love.


Today marked the second day of school cancelations due to flooded roads. While I enjoyed having the extra helpers on my baking day, we have felt a little cooped up! After my two year old woke up from his nap I loaded up the double stroller and went to a local walking trail that happens to meander through a playground. The walk was just what I needed and the playground was just what my children needed. As we were out walking the sun peeked through the clouds! It felt so good. My six year old offered to take my picture today. After every single shot he grinned up at me and said oh this one is really good Mommy, you look very pretty.

Body Love? Braver.


In only a few days I have become braver. Bolder. Ready to dare. Of course with a small anonymous audience it is perhaps easier to be a little more risky. In between downpours there have been a few pockets of light rain and even just some moments of drizzling. I took advantage of the opportunity to get in a brisk workout and a few stretches. Honestly I don’t usually workout in a sport top, I am usually in a loose tee or a modest tank top, but like I said, I am a little braver.

Body Love? Comparison Struggles.

Sunday, a day of community and rejuvenation. With the “hurricane” turning out to be just bad weather, my children and I ventured out to church today. I love the feeling of so many individuals connecting with God in the same time and place. The sermon was beautiful, my six year old son sang in the jubilation choir, and my Sunday school class had a wonderful lesson on prayer. In general I love going to church. But in all honesty (which is what this body love stuff is all about right?) I struggle with comparison at church more than anywhere else.

Body Love? My eye.


Everything on my calendar for today has been cancelled due to the pending hurricane in my area of the world. So without soccer or church events I am spending my day charging batteries, filling up extra water buckets, and making sure all of our candles and flashlights are in place in case of power outages. I am also getting a head start on my normal laundry day, just in case we are out of power. So far today I have gathered a nice little collection of items rescued from little boy’s pockets. As the tiny acorns, seashells, and rocks piled up I couldn’t help but see them as amazing.

Body Love? The whole me.

I realize that yesterday’s body love picture was really just my neck and head. I don’t carry a lot of weight in those areas, so that part of my body is easier for me to appreciate, or at least not be embarrassed about. But I want to move past embarrassment and toward love. So my goal today was to get a full body shot. I tried a lot of my different normal activities; dishes, washing the table, sweeping, etc. But I settled on a picture of my coffee break. I love my coffee break in the morning. I usually sit at my end of the table next to the sliding door. Today, all week really, we have been drenched in rain, and it is gray outside. But still soothing.
