Things I Learned Today / Thursday, December 9, 2021

Things I learned today…

I have new eyelid wrinkles. Yep. It takes extra work to get my eyeliner all winged and fabulous. *eye roll*

I’ve been trying not to eat as much and make better choices, and I’m freaking hungry. I hate it. No, I’m not on any kind of crazy diet or anything. Just trying to be aware. Food addiction (especially for emotional reasons) is legit. I much prefer the part of the brain that remembers 80’s song lyrics and movie quotes.

It was cold. Now it’s warm. I like the cold.

I’m setting aside time next week to sit and drink hot chocolate made with whole milk and one of those cool, little bombs with the marshmallows inside. And I have a new book! I am dreaming about that moment.

I’ve been plagued all day by the passing of a man in our community whose daughter danced with me a while back for several years. Mom is a delight, and I’ve always loved and respected their family. He wasn’t much (if at all) older than me. God bless their sweet girl (14 years old) and Mama. I’ve been faced with the potential loss of my husband before – how would I explain it to my kids, how would I provide, how could I raise them by myself – but for her, it’s a reality. My hurt is broken for them. Pray for them. God knows.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
