Embracing my body

How did we arrive here, as a society, where we are afraid or repulsed, by the healthy and actually amazing functioning of a menstruating body? We think it's normal to quickly rip out and throw away the plastic pad we bought from the store, and we do this as if the whole process is disgusting. Using the Lunapads actually transforms you. As you take care of these pretty cloth pads, rinsing them out and so on, you accept what your body is doing, and you can embrace the act of taking care of yourself and these nicely made articles, which you treat as clothing. (I enjoy the mix of patterns in the 'surprise me' color choice.) As a Catholic, I feel that this method really works well with to bring us back in tune with our bodies in the way that the Church encourages. Thank you to the Lunapad Ladies!
