Continuing on with the guest posts, today’s writer is Michaela Elliott Pate. Michaela is still a Phillipsburg Panther at heart. 🙂 Having both grown up in P’burg, we have fond memories of PHS. However, those memories don’t include many with each other… we hardly knew each other. Now thanks to Facebook and each other’s blog, we have found a new friendship along with our one common thread…Jesus. Michaela’s blog is 49andcounting. Today, she shares with us:
Got a Little Carly Simon Playing in My Head…
Actually, it all started earlier in the day, when my youngest child said (from across the room, I might add), “mom, what’s that spot on your face? in between your eyes?” My response, “what spot?” And then I took a look in the mirror! Now is when I insert, I really didn’t think I was a vain person…BUT
there, right between my eyes, was a huge new wrinkle! “What is that? Where did it come from?” “It’s a wrinkle, a monster wrinkle!”
I had to think back, what have I done wrong in the past 24 hrs. Did I sleep wrong, distort my face in a fit of laughter? Where in the world did this come from? And then Carly started singing in my mind. “You’re so vain…”
And I knew it. This sucker is not leaving. It will be there tomorrow, and the day after that. And I now have one more badge of honor to wear right smack dab in the middle of my face! And that’s the life of being 49andcounting.
