Life Creeps Up On You

7 Dec

Life creeps up on you
When you look in the mirror and see the slightest crease in your eye.

And you get happy because they are smile lines and not frown lines.

When you catch yourself being fascinated with licorice tea.

And you can talk antiques without breaking a sweat.

When you realize people have stopped feeling sorry for you.

And have started respecting you.

When you aren’t that mom anymore.

And are now that great mom.

When the mail no longer brings delinquency notices.

And instead brings cards from Santa to your children.

When stretch marks are badges of honor.

And not one ounce of shame.

When staying up late is 10pm.

And sleeping in is 7am.

When parties are the last place you want to be.

And home is the first place you want to be.

When little giggles trump winning the lottery.

And your husbands hand in yours.

Is perfection.

    Except for the crease in the eye part; a bit delusional? 🙂
