Embrace and love your flaws, God makes no mistakes (no matter what people say)

As women, we often find ourselves sitting and chatting about this and that. Further, we discuss relationships, the skin we are in, happiness, sadness, relationships, family, finances, our butts and how we look in certain things, and while the things we discuss definitely are not topics that men would talk about, we relate and connect…
