My best friend came over the other day with her son and she had some profound advice that has really resonated with me.

 We were walking through the mall, pushing our boys in their strollers (hers is 3 months younger than mine) and we passed a couple of younger SKINNY girls- my friend turned to me and said:

“I used to be jealous of skinny girls like that but then I thought about it.  We’re married to amazing men and have beautiful children.  We have everything they dream of- we just do it in bigger jeans!”

She is so right!  No longer will I resent my bigger jeans- they are a small payment for the ultimate happiness there is!!
