Mirror Mirror On The Wall...

Sun inspired gold plated wall mirror - Style 31397It dawned on me one day that I really don't look in the mirror all that often.  You know all of the excuses - don't have time, in a hurry, it broke, I'm just naturally beautiful and don't need to etcetera etcetera. 

The "dawning" went a little like this...

Bad HairOne morning I got up, did all the routine Mommy and Me things, got dressed and fixed my hair.  I was feelin' pretty good (emphasis on pretty).  I wadded my long hair up into a chic messy bun, stuck in a few bobby pins (who is Bobby anyway?) and perkily went on my way, without ever glancing in the direction of a mirror.  Later that morning I met up with my own mother.  Of course I was excited to see her but I was caught a little off guard by the over zealous hysterical laughter that burst out of her mouth when she saw me.  I was more than eager to be let in on the joke, already smiling and chuckling a little bit with anticipation.  It took her a little while to catch her breath because as soon as she would get cleared up enough to talk she would burst into another round of sailor type belly laughing.  Finally she was able to squeak out through her tears of mirth, "Did you intentionally fix your hair that way or did you forget to fix your hair when you got up this morning?"  I was dumb founded, surely I did not know of what my mom was speaking... "HUH?  Say that again Mom."  Mom says, through another bout of chuckles that sounded suspiciously close to crying, "It looks like a rat is going to jump out of the middle of it all!"

Mind you, this is my MOTHER.  You know, the woman who loves me with every fiber of her being because I came from her womb.  I thought love was suppose to be blind or at least severely far sided.  But, alas, love has eyes that are not vision impaired.

Little Reminders

Sometimes we get so busy with meeting our "goals" and becoming overly proud of ourselves that it's good to stop and be smacked down with a good dose of reality.  I've gathered up a few quotes that, I believe, keep it real.

So, all of you ladies out there tirelessly going from man to man thinking there is a Mr. Right for you - forget it.  You better just start enjoying your own company.
