Having a baby can drastically change a woman's self-image... I love my children, and do not for a minute regret having them... but I still struggle with accepting my new body. It's vain, I know. I'm constantly asking for God's peace.
I love my husband because he is constantly tells me I'm beautiful. Not, "I think you are beautiful." He says, "You are beautiful." It comes completely unprompted. I get teary-eyed just about every time; he loves me despite the stretch marks, extra belly skin, and everything else that goes with a motherly figure. It's not just words, either. He still catch him looking at me like he did ten years ago.
And since I lost track of the date, here's another thing that I love about Jason.
I love my husband because he doesn't belittle my irrational fears. I think I've only ever gone to one concert with him... those kinds of crowds make me squashed, and just a little disoriented. I have no idea why. They just do. He never makes me feel silly for that... just accepts it. I appreciate that so much!
