I planned a wedding! For some unknown reason, the Gods totally blessed me through the process. Meaning that I’ve been blessed not only with an amazing young lady who was completely aware of cost and was gracious enough to be conscience of this, but the fact that we completely connected on pretty much every level throughout the process!
But despite my luck, I learned a few things during this "planning a wedding" thing. Maybe it’s just me or maybe it’s just this time in my life, but as I’ve treasured this extra time with my daughter, something strange came to my attention. Now I know how beautiful my daughter is… I know that at 27 years old, most young women are going to take center stage up against mom, or for that matter, any 52 year old woman. Yet as I was out and about enjoying the planning, I noticed how invisible I became in my daughter’s presence. Am I fading? I look in the mirror and my lips are not pink anymore. They are more the color of my skin (thank goodness for lipstick). My eyes are a tad more sunken in, my lids are slowly hitting my eyeliner (thank goodness for my micro-current), my skin tone (despite some broken capillary's) looks pretty darn good (thank goodness for the ultrasound)! Maybe not as good as my daughter’s olive toned skin, which she inherited from her father, but thank goodness for my business! It really is working!
Yes, to some extent, I’m fading. But it’s enough to just cherish my daughter’s youth, be grateful that I’m not 27 again, and embrace this special time as I enter this wondrous half of my life. Is it going to be wondrous? That is entirely up to me! I can choose to continue to fade or I can make choices to feel vibrant, alive, and beautiful at any age. Louise Hays just was getting started at 50, and at 70 she added even more to her hobbies and desires. She is one of my heroes.
