Years ago, while on a camping trip, I was told I was high maintenance. My response was, if having my hair done and wearing makeup means I’m high maintenance, then yes I am. This was even before I started getting my nails done.
I’m thankful for those who work in salons to help make us beautiful on the outside. I’m thankful for the whining and complaining they put up with day in and day out. They always make those they’re with feel special. I’m especially thankful for the beautiful ladies, on the inside and out, who take care of me each month.
I’m very blessed to have friends who take care of my beauty needs. One puts up with my indecisiveness regarding what color my hair should be each month. Dark with a touch of red, no forget the red, not to dark, but not to light. Oh, and don’t forget to make sure those annoying sparkles (grays) are covered! Another friend takes wonderful care of my nails. We chat and catch each other up on what’s been going on in our worlds. It’s like friends meeting for coffee, but not. I’m thankful for the way they make me feel, loved and beautiful on the inside.
I’m thankful for the time I have to get my hair and nails done each month. I’m thankful to have the money to spend on such a luxury. I’m thankful for the husband who’s okay with my beauty needs. I’m thankful for the familiar faces I run into while at the salon and the new friends I sometimes make.
My prayer for us today ~ Father God, thank you for the wonderful and unique ways we are each made. I pray we would see each other as beautiful talented gifts, with a special purpose for You, Amen.
