I am truly touched by the number of people who linked up for My Happy List this week. I know many of you are thrilled what it has moved to Tuesdays and I am beyond tickled by the overwhelming amount of HAPPY y'all linked up!
I was also so HAPPY to see so many bloggers posting their own versions of happy lists and things they are thankful for or smiling about all over the blogsphere. It seems like HAPPY is contagious, LOVE it!! See what y'all started? It's like a happy revolution, everyone wants to be a part of it!
I cannot wait to read everyone's happy lists this Tuesday!!
I worry that when I get really old that none of my friends or family will come to the old folks home and wax my face for me.
Seriously, I am scared that all of my "stray eyebrows" growing out of my chin are going to turn into quite a handsome goatee.
It makes me want to get it placed in a living will that someone should bus me to a salon every other week or something.
OR make my sister Meg, who is 11 yrs younger than me, sign some sort of promise that she will make it happen.
Because seriously...Bearded Lady is not something I want to see after my name.
Everyday I see my teenager my heart aches a little knowing her childhood is almost over. Then I look a little closer and see what a beautiful young woman she is becoming and my heart aches a little for different reasons.
There are days that I feel like I am missing everything.
Then I get a text message from her that says this:
J: Guess what?
Me: What? What? :)
J: one of my guy friends carried my textbook for me and told me I looked good today.
Me: ooooooh la la
J: Yup :) :) :)
Me: So do you liiiiiike him?
J: IDK yet, he is my friend, he is nice and he's a good Christian.
Me: Well it's fun to start as friends and see what happens no need to rush anything.
J: Yea I think so too.
THEN Big Daddy got a text from J that said:
J: Got your shotgun ready?
BD: Um...am I going to need it?
J: IDK he seems like a nice guy, we are just friends for now.
BD: good girl. You know I need to meet him before you go on a date, right?
J: yep, yep, all the boys who want to date me will know that.
BD: smart girl.
I just want to slow time down a little...I am not ready for a dating teenager, or more chin hairs.
