What a way..... start off the New Year!!!

I've been told before....that I look a lot older than my husband!  I know...that's not a very nice thing to hear...but it's happened several times in the past!  Especially.....since I'm much grayer than he is...but...he's FINALLY starting to catch up with me!!!

Okay....I'm thinking right now....that a lot of women....MOST women....wouldn't even admit to this....but....I have a point to make!!!

Here's the little scene that happened this past Saturday:

We were in a local Goodwill....and Pappy and I decided that I would pay for my purchases and he would pay for his. The lady rang up my items....and they came to about $2.75
(YIPPEE....mine were all half-price because they were considered
Christ-mas items!!!)....then suddenly she starting doing a bit more figuring and told me that my total was around $2.50. I knew that she had given me a Senior citizen discount...which didn't hurt my feelings one iota!

So....I told Pappy that while he was finishing up, I would go over to the store next door to pick up a couple of items.

Here's the part I'm getting to:

When we got back to the car....Pappy said....
"that lady in Goodwill told me that she would let me have your discount".

....was my response....
.....and he repeated what he had just said.

Love his precious heart....he didn't realize that he was letting me know that the Goodwill lady thought that I was a Senior citizen....but not him!

Since one of my "resolutions" for the new year is to try to not be so very serious about every little thing....I decided to laugh it off....what could I do about it anyway, right?  

So...did it hurt my feelings?

I can honestly say....not really....I'm used to it by had on a toboggan so she couldn't see his hair....just his handsome face....second, this head of gray hair ought to be at least worth saving a few cents....even at the expense of somebody thinking that Pappy's my son...or, younger brother....or, that I robbed the cradle!!!

ha! ha!

Ecclesiastes 9:9 (NLT)
 Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil.

If Pappy is to live happily with the woman  that he loves (ME)....thru the "meaningless days of life" (silly things that don't amount to a hill of beans unless I make a "mountain out of a mole-hill" (which I've been known to do)....and if he's to really consider me his "reward" for all his earthly toil....then, I have to learn to let some of the things that are said...and  done....just roll water off a duck's back!!!

Hope all of you can read my little stories....and learn from them
(since it's taken me sooooo long to learn myself!!!)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
