What about my boobies?

I am excited to present my first installment of Friday's column: In This Woman's World. As you'll notice, the text is pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Sometimes I hold them up and look at them in the mirror; trying to imagine where they used to be. Other times I think where they should be. Then there are times I just gaze at them. Contemplating them.

People say they're nice. (No, you don't need to know what people.)

They've nurtured life, provided pleasure and been the source of discomfort. But how do I feel about them?

I, like every woman, have my thoughts about them. Sometimes negative, sometimes accepting and other times proudly with the help of a push-up bra.

Now that I have reached the age when it's time to get mammograms, I think of them practically and thankfully. Practical because I have to maintain their health and thankful that I - like so many of my sisters - am not fighting to keep them.

  1. Great post. I always think the same way, I wanna get them 'redone' so they're better than before the kids came along, but you make a good point, I should be grateful and thankful that they're healthy.
