You might think I’m a guy by my short haircut, but it’s breezy up here in heaven, so I like the no worry feel of shorter hair. Well actually, there are no worries in heaven, but old habits die hard, and I just think I’m better off with shorter tresses.
I’m just popping in on tell you all, you’re doing great! You’ve got courage, endurance, and spunk.
Along with that, I’m keeping watch over you! That’s my job!
Just when the Great Pause is giving you pause, I swoop in to assist you:
- Suddenly your grandma’s missing emerald ring shows up in your underwear drawer.
- You spot that nasty white hair on your chin before anyone else does.
- Yes, you have insomnia, but in the middle of a tossy turny night, you figure out the solution to a vexing problem at the office.
- You’re giving a toast at your cousin’s wedding. Do you break into a hot flash right then? Absolutely NOT!
So that’s about it.
Oh and I know someone will ask about my wings.
Yes, shy though I am to say, the red splotches represent the days of, um, your period.
But the blue/green represents your happy liberation from your monthly visitor, whenever that happens.
Have a heavenly day, my Lovely Earthy Charges!
Your guardian friend,
