Stephenson Family Ties The Barn Burnt Down
And Now I See The Moon
I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone
comes a moment of trial. We all of us have
our particular devil who rides
us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.

is for face in particular.
Mine needs some modifying.
And not because of the growing number of wrinkles and age spots.  Not because of the puffy bags accompanied by dark circles that have taken up residence under my eyes.   And not because my sagging neck and eyelids are all I see when I look in the mirror- when I dare look in the mirror at all.  I've learned, that even after having Anna  taking time to teach me a few make-up applying wont help me with my new found dilemma with my face issues.
I guess my countenance needs some adjusting.  3 years of hard times are apparently showing up on my face now. I suppose I havent been fooling anyone.  I guess I've failed in hiding my feelings and emotions...especially here at home.  What's that old saying...about not treating family as well as treating friends and acquaintances..... GUILTY!!
So..number ONE on the New Year's Resolution list:
Change my attitude.

Repenting and changing attitudes is no easy matter...but there will be benefits...
Maybe my temperamental jaw will not be so painful once again.
Rantings on the inside will stop showing up on the outside.
Feeling like ones head will explode must have external repercussions... behind the eyes. So stop it!!!
I vow to be better...and my face and my loves will be grateful for it!!

You can do it, Aunt Cindy! You are such a good example of pressing forward! Love you :)

The same 'bug' must have visited us both because I too have made a silent vow to be better...more positive. :) Thanks for the reminder and boost! Love you!
