Another Five Minute Friday. This time, the theme is When I Look in the Mirror.
When I look in the mirror, I see a happy girl.
I look the same as when I was 25. Same dark curly hair highlighted with strands of white. Same big smile. Same round cheeks. Same double chin. Same singular dimple. Same chubby, womanly body.
I am so glad to again be soft and lumpy instead of pregnant.
A young mom looks back at me from the mirror. She is tired and imperfect and completely satisfied with her life.
A flawed wife looks back at me. I try to see myself myself as my husband does.
He looks at me in better light than the mirror has.
