I guess I don't see it as a "kindness" issue per se, but that's just how God made me, to desire to feel beautiful! I'm reading this book right now called "Captivating" by John and Stasi Eldredge so it has me thinking about this a bit. I do see where you are coming from though and, yes, it's not good to put our total worth and value on our outward appearance, but I don't know any woman personally who doesn't have that desire to feel attractive to the one she loves.
And I think it's awesome! I hope that each of you feels beautiful and isn't trapped in the comparison game, which is easy to do.
Sorry if I'm a thread-killer!
On the original note, still too soon for me to be able to DTD but we're getting creative in the meantime. I think I'm getting so much oxytocin release from all this tandem nursing that I'm not missing it as much as I normally would...hopefully that's temporary. I do miss the connection though.
Sure am envious of all you 2-weekers! Geesh! I could barely walk normal at that stage.....
