I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times. I love your website.
I am not a mother. I am a 36 year old Ph.D. student who was doing a search for “real women” when I came across your website. Now that I am officially middle-aged, give or take, I felt I needed to see what other women my age look like. The women in my program are actually older than me or younger than me, so I thought I’d look online to see what women en masse look like in their mid-thirties. I didn’t get much on-line.
Instead, I got your website and boy do I feel silly. I was truly humbled by the strength displayed by all the women there. I’m wondering if I look as good as I did when I was in my 20s and these women, most younger than me, are displaying scars of one of the strongest loves known to man: that of a mother.
Needless to say, I now realize that I look just fine and that I will ALWAYS look just fine because we, as humans, are meant to display what we’ve accomplished physically. Whether it is age, or motherhood, or calluses from dancing, or cancer, or a surfing injury, or whatever the world may throw you, your body is the account of it and we all have our scars, wrinkles, laugh-lines, moles, grey hairs, etc.
Anyway, thank you for indulging me. Thank you for your website. Thank you for thinking about what women need.

middle aged…??? holy crap! you’ve got 14 more years to go until that. enjoy your relative youth.
14 more years to middle age, huh? 50 years old is middle age? Well, I hadn’t planned on living a century, but I suppose positive thinking won’t hurt me. :) Thanks for the faith in my genes!
