Life’s Little Moments

I think Michelle Obama hit home when she said in a Good Housekeeping interview that what makes life great are not the big splashy stuff. It is about the little day-to-day routines and rituals.

It was only a few years back that I realized that not everyone gets a head full of gray hairs in their 30’s. What I hate is that most of my grays stand out. They are just begging to be plucked because they are coarse and kinky. G
