Good afternoon Mintdom!

My youngest child turned 30 on Friday, I am getting my hair cut and :::::::shhhh colored::::::: and a real estate ad sent me on a total head trip this morning.  What does my youngest child turning 30, getting my hair done, and a real estate ad have in common.

Please bear with me for a moment.  Maybe you have this figured out already, but as I was on the treadmill this morning, I started to think about what I was going to do with my hair.  My hair does not look as bouncy as it used be, and my first thought is that it is probably because I am getting older.  Gosh – in 4 years I will be sixty years old!  Then the realization that my youngest is 30 years old just put me over the edge.  I thought I am old, overweight, old, single, and old!  Now I do not normally think about my age.  I do not look or act old, so this was a very unpleasant feeling.  As much as I immerse myself in positive reading, music, and people, it takes but a nano-second to head down the wrong path. The good news is that the feeling did not last long. By the time I walked home, started my morning reading, I was feeling better.  The following quotes cinched it.

“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles… by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.” –Mark Twain

“It is important to remember that our thoughts are like water for a garden.  Wherever we let them wander, they will water that area, and help it grow.”

–Brook Noel from her Good Morning book

Although I do not have a garden at my house, in a way I am a gardener of my life. My faith in God nourishes my ‘garden’ and I water it daily with positive people; by reading positive books and articles; and listening to positive music.  These are the things help me grow and change, in order to lead a healthy and balanced life.

I bet you are wondering how the real estate ad fits in with growing and changing and hair.  One of the driving forces (I debated on saying fertilizer but I think that could go down a wrong path ha ha ha) in my garden is my sister Nancy. Nancy has been in real estate for 20 years.  Several years ago, she did a real estate ad in the newspaper showing all her different hairstyles over a period of 14 years.  The ad said something like, “Some things may appear to change over the years, but the quality of service remains the same.”  If I were doing that ad today, it would say,

“No matter how her hairstyle changes, Nancy remains dedicated to her family, friends, and her quest to grow and improve.”

I tried to figure out a way to surprise you with this photo, but the only thing I came up with is this:
