Something we promised the kids before Tyler deployed was a trip to the beach after he returned! We spent last week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and it was glorious, indeed! We stayed at a condo right on the beach. It has an indoor and an outdoor pool available, also. We had a nice time frolicking on the beach, watching the Olympics, and playing games together. The sunrises were simply gorgeous. I absolutely love sitting by the ocean and listening to the waves rolling in.

About a week ago, I verbally gave myself permission to feel beautiful. I looked at my 400 pound body in the mirror and smiled. Today I saw a varicose vein underneath my knee and instead of thinking about how it should be removed or covered up, I embraced it as a part of my body, and viewed it as proof of how hard my body works to have this fantastic life that I have been given. This body was given to me as a gift from God. Just as how I want for my kids to value their bodies, I imagine God wants the same from me.
Embrace your body! It's the only one you get in this life.

For the past six months, my husband was deployed to the Middle East. I am so thankful that he is home with us, once again. My heart goes out to other military spouses who have to handle deployments on a regular basis. It is tough to be a single mama for so many months!
