What me-aging?

Thursday, February 24, 2011


I was at the hair dresser this morning. The hair lady washed my hair and sat me in her chair, ready to blow-dry my hair.
Starring back at me, in that chair, was my Mother.
That's right! The person in the mirror, looking right at me , was my Mom!
I've seen my Mother there before . I was never too sure it was her , but to-day I knew it! There was no mistaking that lady in the mirror!

Now, my Mom passed away several years ago and I do miss her --a lot! But there she was to-day, as big as life, looking me in the eye.

Grant it, I did need colour on my hair and all. Funny how she makes her appearance on these days especially.
I had a difficult time looking her in the eye to-day. It's like I didn't want to accept that I am getting older.
My kids make no bones about telling husband and I that we are aging.
We don't notice it you see----
They say things to us like, "You and Dad are no spring chickens you know"---
--totally shocked me out!
They think it's fine to tell us that "maybe you and Dad should think about downsizing this house".
Imagine!!! --- This is our home and I think we manage very well.
Why is it that our own children talk to us like that? They think they know everything!--
Why, we don't even feel old!
But it is stange that I see my Mom in my reflection at the hairdresser.
You just never know who you may run into in a day do you?

    Great blog, Lynda, and what a wonderful picture of your folks! Was it an anniversary photo?

    I haven't seen a resemblance in my face (I tend to take after my dad's side of the family) but from time to time when I look down at my hands, I see my mother's. If I live long enough, I figure I will end up seeing my grandmother's hands, lol...

    Only one alternative to gettin' older, ain't?

    When my mother died and lay in her casket, all my relatives said that I was the one who looked the most like her. NOW.... ..take note......she was in her casket......dead. So was looking like her.......a good thing???????? LOL

    I loved my mom very much. She's been deceased for a long time so I can chuckle now at those past comments. She was a good looking woman and never looked her age. So I'm not complaining.

    Embrace who you are and who you've become. Each day is precious, and know it because your MOMMY told you it was.

    Enjoy the day!

    BTW - I relate. When I go to Texas to see my Mother's family, they all say the older I get, the more I look just like Mom. I am right there with you, sister.

    Huggers.
