(First public appearance at son’s bday party)
“Are you tired?” was a question I was asked yesterday. My normal sarcastic reply was muted for a more civil one. I hope that attitude lasts a few days.
But you know what? It is okay. It occurred to me that I don’t need eye makeup, or any makeup for that matter. Granted, pictures seem to look a little better when I have color, but this might not be a bad thing in the long run.
The time it takes me to get ready in the mornings will shorten considerably. I won’t have decide which color eyeshadow I need to wear. And two coats of mascara to “lengthen and thicken” my lashes is a thing of the past at this point.
How precious that the Father reminded me that I was beautiful. He created me. Even as my body ages, the dark circles get more pronounced and the joints ache a little more each year from yard work. The grey hairs need covered closer to five weeks than the seven I use to stretch it out to be….and the cherry angiomas outnumber any freckles I ever thought I had!
Eye makeup or not.
Do you feel beautiful because of what you look like or because of who you are and who you are designed to be?
I just might get use to this!
