to the shower
Fresh would NOT be the descriptor first to come to your olfactory senses! Hygienic would NOT be the adjective first uttered upon ocular exercise. I look like crap, and smell..well...not much better! But it is the result of good things! A run figures in. 25 dozen cookies figure in. 4 pans of fudge figure in. 225 individual frosted carrot cake bites figure in. One freshly mowed yard figures in. And of course, there is that age thing. Today, I smell old! The beauty of all this is, it's fixable. A quick shower, a once over with the vegetable brush on my feet and knees, shampoo (okay, so it doesn't take nearly as much as it used to!) and a mighty strong anti-perspirant, and I'll be as good as gold. Even the old will be hidden! Sometimes we forget the little lovelies of life: the joy of doing what's right for you; the pure excitement of a project that turns out; the knowledge that the yard always provides you with something to do. I'm here! I choose to do these things! And I CAN! For that--and for you--I am extremely thankful! Know you are loved!
