#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 Iā€™m Enough!

When I met you in the summer #stonyfield

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. I love all their products and all opinions are my own.
 

How is your summer going so far ?? Are you ready for kids to go back to school ?? As for us, we are not ready for summer to be over. I love having my munchkin home with us. This summer has been a bit sad, just because we don’t have daddy home with us. Soon he will come home and stay with us for a few months, if all goes well. 2014 summer has been filled with GYM, picnics, trips and of course missing daddy and tons of cooking. 

Thing is, i’m not a fan of cooking, hubby normally is the chef around here. This summer has been filled with many “healthy treats and meals”. One of our favorite ‘breakfast/dinner’ meal has been PANCAKES. We love eating them at all times of the day. Not just your average pancakes though. I fill them up with goodness, like these featured below. 

Pancakes Yummy Facts : 

Pancake & Waffle Mix 6-Grain : Central Milling Company // Bananas // Walden Farms Pancake Syrup (Calorie FREE) // Stonyfield Greek Yogurt mixed with PB2 Chocolate. 

This is by far our favorite all day, any day, any time meal. It’s healthy in all aspects I love adding in our amazing Stonyfield yogurt, not to mention that greek yogurt is a fat burner – hey hey hey !!!!

Now, go make some and be sure to come back and tell me what you think. šŸ™‚

I love me some healthy pancakes with Stonyfield filling.
