Ode to Belly

... no, not the internal that growls
with hunger; the one that settles
low, softly around my hips.  That
one:  the one that cradled life; the
one that marked me as a mother;
the one that makes me an entry
into the world of the cursed --- you
fat slob.  You have remained with
me, never abandoned me, through
diet and exercise; through plenty
and lack; through good times and
bad:  faithful friend.  And so I sing
an ode to tummy:  I will love you
since no one else will accept you.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (5/26)

I've got one too my friend! I like Michelle's thoughts on this, we are all different and not meant to be stick thin, oh well I look at my tummy and try to remember what I looked like before it....and I can't! It does serve as a great reminder that it helped shelter my two beautiful children and that I'm not twenty anymore but I'm alive! Loved this my friend...praying for you all tonight!
Blessings from Ky.

In a time of disloyalty, your tummy is always loyal. In a time of lies, your tummy never lies. Be glad you have it. Where would you be without it? Tummies make good pillows. :)
