When I went to a seminary here in Israel. I had to go somewhere with two other girls. Both were boney bone skinny! One was Syrian (pretty white) w/dark straight hair, the other was persian -pretty dark with thick dark hair and me -African American w/dark hair in braids.
Goodness! never in my life did I feel more like I was representing!
I am not fat, i'm size 8, but these girls defied size! I felt FAT around them. But tried to walk as confidently as I could.
Woohoo! heads turned! It was certainly a site. Three girls from very different backgrounds briskly walking down the street shoulder to shoulder.
It was too weird. The two girls seem to take it in stride -confident, cool, like they were just too much and walking down a modeling walk way. I felt like I was faking it (i'm usually pretty mousey) and praying to dear Almighty above that I don't trip or appear not confident.
what stresses in life...
