I was getting ready today and thinking about what I am thankful for. There is a lot that God has given me, but sometimes I am not grateful. One of the major things that I have always despised about my appearance is my nose. Since I was young I remember disliking my nose. I always thought it was a piggy nose. Now that I have a daughter, I have come to love my nose. It’s the same nose God gave to my beautiful little girl. How could I not love it??? If I were to change it now, she and I would no longer share that similarity.
I used to want hair that I didn’t have to dry and straighten every day; it would just dry stick straight all on its own. Now I love that I have hair that can do many things. I actually would NOT like it if my hair was stick straight now.
I used to not like my curvy body. All the girls in my class were very slim and trim. I always had muscle. I was a cheerleader and had a cheerleader’s body. Now I think how grateful I am that I was able to carry and birth children. I know my body isn’t perfect, but I married a man that cares more about my inside than my outside.
I guess I just want to thank God for what he gave me. I am fearfully and wonderfully made… and I am grateful!!!
