A Better Perpective

Many of you have heard of this remarkable women. Although I have not listened to her or heard much of her story one thing keeps popping back into my head that she said, "I am not my body".

I finally cracked and checked it out. What I found was an inspirational women of love and courage. I am so thankful that I have the oppurtunity to be with and raise my children and be apart of the wonderful family that I have along side Mr. Philpott. And remember that I am not my body, Thank you Stephanie.

I shared this with my 4-year old daughter, who like most little girls is very concerned with being "pretty". This is the reason she cut her own hair and this is the reason she gets upset every few days, because now her hair is not "pretty" and long. I explained what happened when your skin gets burned. She was very curious to see. When I asked her if she thought this lady was beautifull she said "Yes". Thank you Stephanie.

Isn't she great! When I worked at Women's Services last year she came and opened for our big recapturing beauty campaign. And I absolutely love what she; I am not my body! It is true for her and for everyone else. I am not defined by my body, adn no one else is either, we are so much more than that! Thanks for sharing it is always a good reminder.
