I can still vividly recall my mother's dressing table. Sta-foam heads, we had dressed up with colored penciled, held her wigs. The boxes of false eyelashes and glue set on the table. My mother was in-style.
My neighbor has just struggled through three of her five chemo treatments. She planned in advance and bought wigs long before they were needed. She came over one day and ask if I would be truthful and let her know if they looked good on her. I was so honored, and they did. I kissed her on the cheek while reminding her of her beauty . This week held another part of her journey...the hair loss has now taken away her eyebrows and eyelashes.
With life-filled laughter she said, "well one good thing about all this is, I am learning to be more stylish. I never would have tried shorter hair and even eyelashes!" I just loved it. She is facing the cancer giant and staring it back with laughter and style. She looks beautiful and excited about her new adventurous look.
Hey all of it is back in style! Her and I both agreed it was time for both of us to become less frumpy. I think I will go down and find me some eye-lashes. I think I will join her at her make-up table and together we will laugh while we apply eye-lashes and maybe some Pinterest style eye-shadow. I am sure I will learn more from her than just how to apply the stylish make-up.
A cheerful heart is good like medicine. Proverbs 17:22
Eye-lashes even come for cars now!!!
I have had fun jumping out and taking pictures with my phone...Ben, not so sure about his mom!
Are you wearing fake eye-lashes? Are you going to try them? How about for your car? What style is coming back that you remember and plan to repeat?
