Girls Write Out
Wednesday, November 25, 2009

I had a bad morning. I woke up with a migraine. I still have it, so excuse any typos. But I got dressed in summer pants, but my feet were cold, so I put on my mahogany boots over them, and a jacket. I patted my hair down, pat some powder on and headed to Starbucks. My head hurt. I didn't care how I looked.

But I got in there, and I think the barista took a look at me, and felt sorry for me. Every day I get the same drink: An iced soy mocha (grande -- or medium for you non-Starbucks types.) Today, she made me a Vente (large, 20 oz with three shots -- thank you Jesus!)

So today, I'm thankful that I looked like crap and my barista knows me well enough to offer that little taste of grace in the form of an extra shot. I'm going to pass it on. I came home and made the kids pancakes. I want to encourage you all to go out and offer a little grace of your own.

On another note, I get tired of how thick my hair is, so I'm always hacking it with thinning shears by myself. My hairdresser NEVER lectures me. She just fixes it, and tells me where I have a hole and what she did to cover it up this time. That's grace too. Because I keep coming back because she never says, "STOP DOING THAT, STUPID!"

She fixed me. Here I am yesterday:

LOL! Isn't it cool when little fun, unexpected things happen like that! How thoughtful of the barista!

A venti mocha sounds good to me right about now . . . .

It was good, but I still have my migraine. : ( So i'm going to wait until DH gets home and drive with him to my mom's. Which is good from a family aspect. : )

You look great, Kris. I have that same habit of hacking at my hair if it gets too long before my next appt., so I appreciate that in my hairdresser, too. She doesn't gripe, just fixes it and tells me I didn't do too badly--except the time I accidentally cut my bangs about two inches too short. Ugh.

I'm thankful that I have hair! Even if it doesn't always grow in the areas where I want it to grow.

You look gorgeous. It should be on a book cover or something.

Wish I looked half that good after playing with my hair. Hope you've had a wonderful Thanksgiving and your migraine only a distant memory.
