Skin Deep / Deep Thought of the Day

I was commiserating out loud with Debbie on her Jan. 18th post about not recognizing the older person in the mirror. It seems like overnight gray patches of hair are sprouting, I am developing jowls and "laugh lines" are starting to make a case for Botox.

Fresh from hearing the Inaugural Address and Martin Luther King Speech, my wise son, Alex, reminded me that
" It doesn’t matter what your skin looks like; it’s what’s inside that counts!"

(I give that 2 LOLs & a big ;))

From the mouths of babes. Great insight from you son.

I'm with you and the "experience" lines we all get with time. Just remember you earned them...

Sometimes I don't recognize the older person that's surfacing in my mirror either. But she's won some hard fought battles to get here. I like her and wouldn't trade her for the younger version for anything.

You have one caring and smart little guy! He reminds me of my son, Kyle.
