Hey ya’ll! Here we are at week 3 of Monday Confessions. So a couple of weeks ago my precious husband says to me, “Do you think it’s possible that we get new towels?” It was like it was hard for him to ask me. It really was the sweetest thing. I automatically felt very embarrassed. Embarrassed! Isn’t that crazy? To feel embarrassed in front of the man I’ve been married to for 23 years?? I was embarrassed because I realized that I had only bought towels ONE TIME in the 23 years that we’ve been married, and that was only because my girls grew out of their baby towels! We’ve been using the same towels that we received at our wedding shower for TWENTY THREE STINKIN’ YEARS!
Come on ya’ll… I mean, who really thinks about buying towels?
Apparently not me. Buying a new pair of shoes is much more fun and glamorous don’t ya think?
So here’s the thing. We’ve lived in 5 houses in the time that we’ve been married. At each house, I’ve upgraded the features in our bathroom. So in this case, how is it that I’ve lived with the same towels for 23 years?? Could I not have “upgraded” in towels as well? One would think. 😉
So I’ve kinda learned something about myself. Well, I guess I already knew this about myself, but it confirms it. I’m not into the details. I like the big picture of things. Not details. Which is so true about me.
What about you? Surely I’m not the only one out there who doesn’t think of buying towels..and if I’m not and there are more like me, what does that say about us? Could it mean that we might be much more concerned with the way people see us on the outside than concerned with what they see on the inside? What can be seen is the beautiful bathroom with upgraded features. What can’t be seen is the raggedy towels being used everyday. What can be seen is the cute clothes we wear. What can’t be seen by the naked eye is what is going on inside our head and heart. I need to go buy new towels. I also need to make sure that I’m focusing just as much (if not more) on what is on the inside of me as I do on what is on the outside of me. Get it? Thank about it!
Until next time, Happy Monday!
I dearly love each and every one of you!
