~Friday....Fridays are made for Scrapping~


OK this one really whooped me, I struggled literally all day with it. BUT Finally did it! After ripping up Lo's!! Thanks Minda....
Journaling
Why is it when I look in the mirror, I still see nothing but fat? I have survived a childhood of torture and abuse, an adolescence or rape and turmoil and a marriage of life threatening physical abuse and losing a baby to violence. Yet I stand…broken but tall. But every day I wake up to look in the mirror and only see fat and insecurities. I know right now I have to give everything I’ve got to healing and being a good mom because my children deserve that gift. But my one wish is to find the power to look in MY mirror with eyes that see beauty and strength and look past the fat and pain. Whose Eyes See YOU?

OK I think I need a day off from scrapping now LOL
2 deep journaling Lo's in a row, time to make a fluffy fun one! hehehe
Have a beautiful Friday

Pinky I love your journaling. You are a beautiful woman. But being overweight myself I understand the thing about looking in a mirror and seeing only fat and nothing more. But just remember if we can't see it with our eyes we need to need in our hearts that we are beautiful woman in many ways.

What a moving LO! I love what you did with it but boy this had to be another tough one!!!! I am proud of you!!! As a counselor, I say you are doing what needs to be done, as a friend I want to tell you, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!! What makes beauty is not your size, your smile, although some feel this is where beauty is, but true beauty is inside!!! What you offer your family, friends and community. Take it from me, I have seen some stunning women and thought wow, she sure is ugly! Ugly because of the meaness and heartlessness!!! Love you cookie and keep on being you!!!
