What's wrong with stretch marks?!

Ya' know, I just don't get it. As women we beat ourselves up over every aspect of our appearance. One of those being stretchmarks. Yes, I have stretchmarks. I had them before my child was born, and I have many more since. Some are from excess wight I put on pre pregnancy, but the most visible are those I got during my pregnancy. I just think we should consider "wearing" them as stripes of honor. Seeing them as a part of the beautiful process that brought us our most cherished blessings. I have a hard time loathing a part of me that produced such a beautiful gift. Any way... I don't think we should be so hard on ourselves. Let's strive to be healthy and celebrate the gifts God gives us so richly!
