for future reference....

yesterday at church i was standing with a group of friends when The Girls walked up, and shanna put her arms around them saying to krya, "you are made of sweetness & light", and to meg, "you are made of spice & love". which prompted me to ask, (foolishly), "what does that mean i'm made of?" her husband had just finished saying that we couldn't discuss that in mixed company when simpson, a lovely man who doesn't give 2 figs about fashion, said, "really cute shoes and a tasty blazer." the whole group burst out laughing, and i had to concede that they were probably right! the truth of that was hammered home at the end of the service, when i was presented with a 'best mom in the universe' certificate, handmade by meg. in fine print along the bottom it said, "the cutest shoes and the most loving". that's an epitaph worth being proud of. when i have died of old, old, old age, feel free to put it on my tombstone.
