This is my very first self portrait....I have never liked pictures of myself and I like them even less when you can only get the camera as far away as the length of your arm.
I have always had bad hair. I wish I had time to scan some of my pictures as a kid. One year my mom gave me a very short 'pixie' cut. You can call it the name of a fairy but it was one very short, ugly boy's hair cut. What did I do to deserve that. My hair has just enough girl to be frizzy but not enough to be curly like my girls, or straight without trouble. Give me a day with wind, or fog or humidity and I am in trouble. It's fine and thin, but I recently had it cut and colored by Jacque at Salon Goddess and I have really been liking it. Thanks Jacque. Here our a few pictures from the past of some very bad hair days....
Shortly after meeting Reid 1982 (And he still asked me to marry him...)
My all-time personal favorite-The mullet/Bay City Roller look....(Was this a mug shot?)
The mullet/Bay City Roller with a perm (lots of tears were shed after this haircut....) I'm still laughing at this one. ( I had terrible hair but at least I had great fashion sense....notice Reid and I match.)
I have to say when I hear other people complain about their hair I am not too sympathetic. I definetly envy other people's hair and dream of a day I can just pull it back in a pony tail....but that day is not today, so I am going to go hop in the shower and do my hair.
You cannot do a Google search to gain a testimony. You can't text message faith. You gain a life-changing testimony today the same way it has always been done. It comes through desire, study, prayer, obedience and service.
I am wife of one and mother of five. I consider myself loyal, friendly, busy and hopeful. I love my husband, my children, my friends and my girls....I dream of more time to be a better wife, a better mother, a better neighbor and friend.
