1Today, I found a gray hair.
I found a new line on my face, dimples in my skin, a stretch mark on my belly. I found tired eyes, achy muscles and a brain that desperately needed to be recharged. I found a body that had forever been transformed by the exalting title of Mother.
But I also found a strong, able, healthy body. I found a head of hair that gets crowned with a princess crown every day from my daughter. A face that can smile with true joy. I found arms that can wrap around my loved ones. I found legs that can run and crawl on the floor with my kids. I found a belly that gets full on healthy food daily, eyes that get to see the beauty in the world and a brain that stores beautiful family memories each day.
Take heart, you’re beautiful mother.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. – 2 Corinthians 4:16
