My daughter and I had a few minutes at the end of the day and she was feeling crafty, so we knocked out a couple of memory wire bracelets. I chose some glass beads that were purplish and greenish and goldish. She chose some plastic beads that were sparkly green and gray/blue pearls. She is a faster beader than her mother. When we ran out of time, she was already done and I was not, so I clipped the wire and ended it early.
When I conned her into posing for a photo, she wanted to cover her hands because her nails were not at their best. I just laughed. Her skin is so beautiful and she doesn’t even know it! She looked at the photo when we were done and wondered why I had so many splotches and wrinkles on my hand. I told her it was because I was 46. The awesome thing is that I know in another 40 years, I may look at this photo and think how young my hands looked. We never miss it until it’s gone!
