I usually wear make-up everyday. I started this early on in my marriage because I felt more together if I took the time to get cleaned up everyday. Even when my husband was away at sea, I still tried my best to shower, put on make-up and put on decent clothes. For me as a stay at home mom, I always feel more together if I do theses simple steps. The past week I have abandoned the whole make-up thing. I still got cleaned up, but I didn't go into the other bathroom and apply my make-up. I noticed my husband and older boys were asking me if I was o.k. I wasn't totally putting two and two together. I then realized that they were just used to seeing me with make-up and my hair fixed. Then I started thinking why wasn't I doing those things. Then I remembered... for some odd reason the thought of having to step over lamb droppings to get to my make-up seemed to discourage me from that chore. Just so you know...the lamb has moved to the shop so for all of those who care... I am now once again fixing my hair and doing my make-up!!! It is amazing how a clean bathroom floor will inspire me to get back to my regular scheduled routine!
grace and peace,
