Changes happen in the body as we mature. Yes, let’s say “mature” instead of “grow older”. Our eyesight changes and perhaps we need reading glasses. Yes, that is me. I have worn reading glasses for years. I have even shared my need for glasses in a previous post.
When I was a young woman in my 30’s, I had a friend who always wore her reading glasses hanging around her neck with the cutest ribbon, string or something special to hold the glasses until she needed them.
I vowed never to be that lady. I would never wear glasses hanging from my neck, causing me to look “older”.
Well… amazing how time changes and the need to read overrides the need for looking cute. Around age 55, I purchased two of those colorful strings and attached them to my reading glasses. I am a happy lady because now I don’t have to constantly say, “Where are my glasses?” Wearing them to the grocery store is fine with me. If they help me read the labels on the grocery items, then the fashion statement doesn’t matter.
Of course, at home I keep a pair of glasses upstairs and a pair downstairs. My only problem now is there are times when I forget I am wearing the glasses and walk downstairs or upstairs saying, “Where are my glasses?”, only to find I have two pairs of reading glasses hanging from my neck. 🙂 Yes, laugh out loud because this is me.
If you see me and two pairs of glasses are hanging from my neck, don’t worry. I truly meant to do that. NOT! 🙂 Please advise me of my mistake so I won’t feel silly. Honesty is appreciated.
Life continues to be busy here in South Carolina. Good thing I have reading glasses so I can keep up on current events. 🙂
I often say God gives us lots of things to laugh about and this Thanksgiving, I am thanking Him once again for laughter. What about you? What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Reading,
