Looking in the mirror this morning I thought of one of my favorite moments. I am re posting this blog I hope you don’t mind.
Over the Christmas holiday my granddaughter and I were looking through some old photos.
She came across my graduation photo (circa 1978 see photo) and I told her a bit about that time when I was younger. She listened closely and then when I was finished she said, “Grandma it just doesn’t look like you”. When I asked why she simply stated “because of the crinkles”.
The crinkles I asked?
“Yes”, she replied and gently squeezed her thumb and forefinger to pinch the laugh lines (crow’s feet) at the corner of my eye. “They’re right here”, she said.
I laughed so hard.
Then she mentioned the laugh lines on the corner of my mouth, and she proceeded to squish her face with great zeal as she tried to create crinkles of her own.I assured her that her crinkles
will come after a well lived life filled with lots of love and laughter.
I am so fortunate to have a face graced with crinkles. Because, it’s little priceless moments just like that one that makes every crinkle well deserved and worth having.
I wish you many crinkles!
