The last couple of months have been challenging.
As I've written before, my kid was going through a tough time...her first broken heart. During this time someone told me.."a momma is only as happy as her unhappiest kid" true ...soooooo true.
But being the Pollyanna that i am, I always try and look on the bright side or find a truth I can stand on. Of course, I could go on and on and on about how my daughter has grown in her faith or learned some valuable life lesson.....BUT today its about ME...ALL about ME.
Here is one thing I've learned in the last months. One truth I've realized. One thing that has touched my soul and shed new light....I love cowboy boots.
I know..profound! Oh my gosh... they just make me sooooo happy. In fact I'm wearing them right now...in fact...its all i can do to ever take off my new boots. My husband got me these adorable LUCKY BRAND boots for my birthday. (OK...he might have had a little help in the selecting....:) They just make me feel better all over. Shoot, not just better... POWERFUL, I can take on the world... I can see why cowboys have that swagger....(gosh...all this time, i thought it was the chaps)
For those of you that don't know me ,this is waaaaaay odder than it might sound. I live about 4 1/2 miles from Washington D.C. Cowboy boots...not really the common thing.('specially since W left) Guess what? I don't care. I'm 51 as of last week...and I'll wear cowboy boots with a Tinkerbell outfit if i feel like it!!! WOW ...getting old just seems to shed your inhibitions....(shoot...can i say wise instead of old??) either way...i just thought you should know...or be warned...however you want to look at it.
Have a great week...I'm out to round up some cowpokes...or errr real estate clients
thanks Charlie! :)
