#imENOUGH. YOU are ENOUGH.

In life we have seasons, some season we feel amazing and some we just feel down – trust me I know all about them. I have a deployed husband and three kids to care for and I sometimes, just wonder if I’m doing a good job in any of this. The society  we live in says we have to look a certain way in order to be accepted. I know i’ve looked at myself in the mirror and can pin point ton of my flaws { stretch marks, weight, chubby toes, big thighs).  I’ve learned to love myself for who I am, even with all my flaws. You know why?? because, when God created us, He made us exactly the way He planned. He designed us, before we were even in our mother’s womb – I mean how amazing is He ?? My husband and munchkins simple gestures, words, and appreciation go a long way. Somedays, I simply take a shower and youareenoughbrush my hair and my daughter saids to me ” mom you’re so beautiful”. She completely  makes my day. She doesn’t see my faults or flaws,  she just sees me with love. Just a few days ago while talking to my husband via Facebook. He asked what I was up to? I said ” Trying to get beautiful, for you when you get back”. His reply was ” It’s impossible for you to get MORE beautiful than YOU already are GIRL you’re MAXED OUT – I LOVE YOU”  Can I just say this made me cry, and appreciate the husband I have for loving me; just the way I am. It’s day like these that I appreciate and feel like ‘IM ENOUGH‘.  Military life is not an easy life, I try my best to hold down the fort while hubby is away. Try to keep the kids up to date with daddy’s pictures, and remind them that daddy loves them while still acting like mom and dad while he is gone. My kids letting me know that “mommy you’re the best” is a sign of ‘YOU ARE ENOUGH” and you must be doing something right, Polly.  If you are reading this, I want YOU to know that YOU TOO are beautiful just the way you are and YOU ARE ENOUGH and DON’T CHA FORGET THAT !! The next time you look in the mirror, don’t be afraid of what you see, for you were made in the image of God. GOD LOVES YOU.  The Mrs. single “Enough”, was written to help women see themselves with a less critical eye, and realize that they are “Enough” just the way they are.  Be sure to grab a tissue – for reals. 

 
Thank you to The Mrs. for sponsoring my post and reminding me that I’m Enough!

  1. Wow Polly. Very very nice!! I love how honest you are about your daily routine in life. That video was awesome too. Just a heads up, nothing beats a beautiful person inside and out and that my dear is YOU!! You all are such a great unit (family). Love you guys.

  2. Such beautiful words from a person who is beautiful from the inside and out.

    Believe it or not, our society ALWAYS finds flaws, no matter what you look like or how you live your life.

    You are right, we are created to be exactly who we are supposed to be…nothing more 😉

I love me some comments, speak your mind.
