You are JOY!

Last week or was it two weeks ago….no matter when… but  I felt jealous.  Why? I compared myself to someone else.  Someone close to me.  Not my husband, but one of my friends.  IT’s a bad thing.  

  My husband told me that  I am beautiful the way I am.   My life, and my body has changed so much for so long.   I am a mom, a wife, and me!   I do take care of myself more now than I did when I first started living with my husband, when I first married my husband, and when I became a mom.   There is no other ME.  I am my only version of me.  I change daily in growing for the better.  To be a better ME, a better mom, a better wife.    I find JOY in myself

Look where I have accomplished in life today.  I have never let my disability of being deaf at birth prevent me from reaching anything in what I want to do.   At 31, I dabble in photography,  a mom of 5 kids (3 living boys, 2 angel babies), a married wife to Isaiah, I stay home to care for the house, and my kids, and etc.  I have travelled a little bit since leaving my “growing up” home at 21.  I went to the DR at 23 and Jamaica at 30.  

My “shell” of myself continues to open daily.  I am constantly trying to do things outside of the box to see what I can do for myself and with my husband.  God can give you more than you realize in the things that you do inside and outside of the home daily.   I work on my marriage, motherhood, friendships with my girls, and more. I may not be 125 like I was at 18, but even just under 160, I still maintain what is ME.  My husband still desires me.  I still desire only and for my husband.    I do Zumba and want to do try to do more than just that to remain active all around and possibly lose weight. Just would take longer than normal.  I know my love handles probably won’t go away completely but that’s because I chose to create 5 babies with my husband and that is a gift and blessing in one! ❤  You can find joy in loving yourself and that’s ALL of it..both on the outside and inside!
