Thank goodness. Thank goodness I stopped myself and actually thought before the words in my head -"Please don't eat all the carrots out of the garden!" - escaped my mouth. Because really now. How ridiculous is that of a thing to say? And second of all, with two bottom teeth missing and two wigglies up top, if carrots right from the garden are what he really wants to eat, not a soul on earth should stop him, least of all his Mama. Eat all the garden carrots you want, my love. They're yours.

Thank you, all, for so kindly receiving my words and thoughts yesterday and for sending back so much love, gentleness, and righteousness too - for that's what I hope we feel about the issue of our bodies. Protective and proud. And what a gift we have in that we can encourage each other too. Let's always do just that.
