My own perfection

My mom says I'll probably still have big thighs in Heaven because they're not an "imperfection."

Huh, very interesting. I guess we all have our own views about what an impterfection is.

I've often wondered about this. What age will be? Will we get to pick? Will we simply be at the best we were in our lives, or better than we ever were? I would probably prefer to pick and choose different body parts from different ages. I.E. I'll take my baby skin, my body now, but my eyes like 10 years ago.

PS I've seen you and don't think you have anything to worry about!

You are beautiful, Emily! You look just fine to me. I have a pear-shaped body and have really struggled to accept the fact that my hips are really wide in proportion to the rest of my body...one good thing I found out. Women with pear-shaped bodies have a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Thanks for the nice comments, but be assured I didn't post this so you would all tell me I'm beautiful! I swear it. I'm not digging for compliments. I just thought it was an interesting thing to think about. And I hope my mom is wrong.

Well, I think that's wrong. Because isn't there also the general consensus that no one will be bald? It's not really an imperfection, but most people would prefer having hair versus not. I think if you're on board with the idea that everyone will be perfected, maybe it's just what each individual personally feels is "perfect" - for me: 20 lbs skinnier, perfect toned thighs, great boobs, perfect skin. Is that too much to ask? :)

You're perfect to me. Love, Mom

Em, you are funny. And perfect. But I want my butt from when I was 18 & what about my boob job I get after I have kids (it'll only be a small B, that's all I want, maybe just a full A?). Do I get to take those with me to heaven?
