When (if) I Grow Up

I remember being a very young girl, maybe 4 or 5, and watching my mom put her blush and eye make up on. I remember her jewelry box full of treasures. I thought it was such a feminine exercise-getting ready to go out. My mom was so beautiful and I wanted to be just like her when I grew up.

And, whenever I "get beautiful" (as I call it), like last night for our symphony date, my thoughts wander back to watching my mom in the same age old practice. But now my daughters watch me.

they watch me, but LC does not get this flair from me. I'm more conservative...=)

Unsurprisingly, I think I am a lot like my mom. In looks, and mannerisms. And sometimes when I open my mouth, I hear my mother coming out. Yes, that does make me cringe just a little.

"Its time to eat..."

I have had many role models as I've grown. Role models in fashion and beauty, athletics, personality, skills, and godliness. Women God brought into my life, physically or even through books, that I want to imitate.
