Mama, You Are Beautiful
Motherhood changes us.
It changes our priorities, our relationships, our views on the world. It can change us in so many ways that we may not even see all the changes that have taken place, but they are there.
It also changes our bodies. Some of these changes are temporary (I promise, your hair will stop falling out eventually). Many though, are permanent.
I want you to know….
You may have new stretch marks where there were none before, and your breasts may have lost their pre-baby perkiness, but believe me, you are beautiful.
In those moments when you look in the mirror and see a body that you may not recognize, remember that this is the body that has nourished and comforted your children. Think about that for a minute….your body did something as amazing as growing and nurturing another human being. That is no small feat. It is fucking amazing.
