A Mother is Beautiful – Without Airbrushing

Mothers are Beautiful!

Sometimes, I get humbled.  Here we are always dealing with beauty and what-not and I read this article and I am humbled.  Read it.  It’s short.

See?  I knew this.  I don’t have to be told what a real mother looks like.  I was married to two of them.  I have dated several.  The problem is that, not only do men not always pay attention to the fact that a little less than perfect means the woman has lived, loved, and raised children, but also the women seem to forget this.  I don’t know how often I have seen or talked to women who are struggling to overdo the workouts and exercises and diets in order to “lose” the baby fat or get the wrinkles gone or whatever.

Truth?  They don’t look bad on you, sweetheart.  Especially, if we just stop and realize how they got there.  Society has messed with all our minds and it’s time we stop it.

Smile and be happy that you have lived enough to have a bit of stretch mark, that a couple of pounds is in the wrong place, that you are not that perfect model.  You are you and you is beautiful!

What do you think?

Namaste,

Scott

    I don’t see it as a little less than perfect. It is perfect to me because my body did what it is made to do. What it left me with is a visible memory of that wonder. It is, in its essence…woman.
