I heart faces: all about babies

I was very inspired by this post from Tia and this post from Kelsey…. I am very uncomfortable with my newest war wounds… I don’t really like them. They remind me of the rough birth I had, and how I almost didn’t make it. I don’t like to show it off, but I need to accept that this is me now.

That’s it. There’s my belly. There’s my appendectomy scar, my c-section scar, and my babe. Ok. Bye, off to work now.

    Ditto what Tia said.To risk sounding like a over-said quote, scars show there has been life taking place:)And hey. I love good, honest, sometimes-really-hard posts.

    That little face is totally worth the scars! That's how I feel about my stretch marks. No more bikinis, but I have the dude!!

    Although you may not like your scars, they are significant! They now symbolize what a strong woman you are! I admire you!
