One of Butcher’s many pieces of wisdom is to “Appreciate your good health and functioning body — even if it isn’t your ideal size.” Read her entire message below.

Life is short, friends. Despite all the stress, problems, and bumps in the road, we should all take time to give thanks and enjoy our loved ones.
