Today has been a tough day. Emotions were frayed due to mean children in school, homework difficulties and the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. I've been reflecting on things that I'm thankful for in my life. Of course there is the obvious: the gift of family and friends, a roof over our head and food on the table are all things that we give thanks for each and everyday. But over the next few days I want to share some of the things that I welcome into my life each and everyday. Some may be very materialistic and vain...but, man, if I didn't have them in my life, well, I guess I could live without them, but they just make my life a bit easier and gentler.
After today's episodes I thought I would start with Bare Minerals. I thank my SIL, Julie for introducing this stuff to me back in May. I guess I'm not watching enough late night commercials to see that this stuff has been around for awhile. As I enter the back side of my forties, I'm amazed to see how those little "life lines" are quickly multiplying. I'm not a big make-up person but this powder is just enough to cover the red blotches that seem to appear out of nowhere, dry up the oily skin and at least lessen the lines a bit. Love it and will continue to use until I'm unable.
So I start with a vain thank you. Probably not the best, but at least I didn't start with my favorite brand of vodka...because I so need a tall glass of something after this evening's activities!
