Happy Monday, friends! We are coming off of a very good weekend. I’ve noticed that more and more lately, life has just felt “good.” This is after a very tough two years for me, and it feels amazing to really enjoy life again. The Lord has been so faithful through it all, but sometimes personal issues can really bring us to our knees, can’t they? Anyhow, it is such a blessing to feel happy and whole, even though life can be tough, and is far from “perfect.”
Last weekend, I had the honor to watch my twenty-year-old daughter dance in a performance, and watch her classes dance. I’ve never watched children she taught before, and it was a joy to see her on the side of the stage, giving her classes their cues. Sometimes I wondered if all of those dance classes were worth it while Maddy was growing up, but they definitely were for her. She is a now a member of a Christian Contemporary Ballet Company, and will soon be the preschool dance director at her school.
Anyhow, I was scrambling a little bit to find something to wear to her performance. I felt like wearing black, but couldn’t find anything just right in my closet that fit me well. I’ve now lost 37 pounds in the past six months or so. Hooray!
What I Wore:
Two Top Pieces – Cato
Skirt – Thrifted
Leggings – Amazon
Shoes – Shoe Department
Anyhow, I ended up wearing a black shirt that I normally use as an “undershirt” (though it’s not), along with a black cardigan. The skirt was thrifted. I had never worn it before, since it used to be way too small for me. I actually bought it for my daughters, but they just didn’t like it, I guess.
In the end, I felt put together enough for “a night at the theater.” Just my husband and I went this time, and we ate at my favorite Mexican place on the way. In the spring, Maddy will be a part of a Narnia production that we will bring the whole family to.
Since then, I have been able to find a few more new pieces for my wardrobe, and I’ll be sharing about that on my YouTube channel later in the week.
I hope you have a lovely week, friends!
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
