Be careful and specific in what you wish for. I wished for no more snow and have been heard so far, but I forgot to add "please bring lots of sunshine instead". Don't you think Mother Nature knows what I want by now?
I recently overheard two women, maybe ten years younger than I am, discussing what they had to do their hair (covering gray), what they had to purchase for their skin care (seemingly believing expensive was better than common drugstore brands), and what clothing they wouldn't be caught dead in.
While I firmly believe that everyone should do and wear what they feel is right for them, I was inwardly shaking my head at the mixed signal they were sending. They were very concerned with their appearance and trying to look youthful, but they forgot the least expensive and handiest beauty treatment in the world...a smile.
Do you care how old the women in this photo look? I don't. I love that they are smiling, laughing in fact. I'd rather sit with them than the glum women whose expressions aged them beyond their creams and fashion choices.
Onward and upward! With a smile on my face, an umbrella in hand and a pain pill in my pocket!
