    Love love love! Thankful for your vulnerability in sharing and for encouraging us to see ourselves through the lens of joy and acceptance. By the way, when I look at you, I’ve only ever smiled and been thankful that you’re my mama.

    I avoid FaceTiming -always. I only Skype with my BFF and try to not look at my own face block. In my head I still look like I did in my 30s (I just applied for Medicare – WHAT!?!?) so a real image of myself is shocking. My mother’s face stares back at me. I think “this is the me that people see – and they think I’m still gorgeous.” So I try to believe them – yeah, let’s go with that. Your message is loud and clear and resonates with me. Thanks for the uplift to be more kind with myself. I’m gonna work on that.

    This is so true, Jane!! Last Sunday…at my daughter’s bridal shower, I wore earrings that I wore 30 years earlier….my youngest daughter had a picture of me from back then, with those earrings on…so she took the same picture of me with them on…I cringed!!! I said, “please don’t post that”! Who wants to see a 30 year comparison? That was right before my beautiful mom past away and now I think..hey..post away…for all the reasons you have stated! ❤️

    Thank you so much, Jane, for your perspective!!! Such a good reminder! I hardly ever like pictures of me, but a few weeks ago on Mother’s Day, my middle daughter took a selfie of her & me together. I told her, "I really like that picture!" All the reasons you give in your blog post are all the reasons I usually don’t like pictures of myself. When my youngest daughter face times me for her 2 year old son to talk to "Dranma" (Grandma), he wants to see my face! So sweet & such a reminder of how others see us…special to them. My Mom is 89 years old, & I’m so glad she’s still around for me to see & talk to. I’ve always looked like her, & I don’t mind at all. Thanks again, for the great reminder to love ourselves as God & others love us.

    I was so excited to read your blog when I got the email…..for someone who has self loathed since struggling with my weight…until I got to the following section.
    "I am not an overly critical person as it comes to appearances. (Except when it comes to leggings. Why should I be subjected to everyone else’s jiggle? A rant for another day). I don’t spend my time looking for areas of physical criticism."
    Sounds to me you like you do. It’s a shame…because the rest of the article had some good points.
