In the end, Mothers hold all the true beauty of the world. (Anonymous)

April 9, 2007

I was never skinny, and knew I never would be. Yet I strived for it; I yearned for the flat stomach and bikini body. It never came. Instead I got the most beautiful round belly, that carried even more beauty inside. Then came the stretchmarks, and the saggyness that I knew I would carry around with me for the rest of my life. They are my true beauty marks, my badge of honor; For I did one of the most wonderful and beautiful things a women could ever do. I became a mother. The outcome was more than I could have imagined and now I have come to treasure those marks that fade, but never disappear. I have come to embrace the extra skin that shows how much love I have to give. Without ‘The Shape of a Mother’ this love of my new ‘Mommmy belly’ would have never emerged. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I attached pictures of me 10 1/2 months post partum and the most beautiful little boy who makes it all worth it.

    Your post made me start getting teary eyed — because you are right — it is through seeing & understanding the mother-bod we all share (in so many ways) do we understand the wonderful gift we’ve been given.
