Differences can be lonely

I see diversity every day, just by leaving my house.  Even in a small town where you wouldn't expect to see such differences in people, I am amazed.

As fodder for my blog, last week, I decided to ask the women in my office, what sorts of things interest them.  The results were astonishing.  There wasn't a single same answer on the lists.  More surprisingly is they each had a list of interests without a single thing on it that in which I am interested.  How crazy is it that we all work for the same company, we all see each other every day and yet we have nothing in common.  If I didn't have such wonderful family and friends already, I would be disheartened with this fact.

It brings to light just how tough it is to live in a world of such great differences.  It makes it ever so much clearer, to me, why there are companies like Match and eHarmony.  How in the world do people find other people like them?  I am so lucky to have a partner in my life.  I wouldn't even know where to start to find a date.  I would even know how to go about making new friends.  It makes me think, differences can be very lonely.

Mojo Monday - MOJO140

I was in a creative mood tonight so, decided to give Mojo Monday a go.  I used all Close to My Heart product, except for that little green chipboard flower, which I happened to have in my mess of accessories.  This is the Bella paperpack, Bella My Stickease, Creme Brule Just Blooms, tulip brads and chocolate Waxy Flax.  I used chocolate, creme brule, olive and hollyhock inks and the Rustic Flowers stamp set. I am still trying to figure out how to take better photos with the "big" camera, so bear with me :)

Size does matter

One of my favorite retailers was having a great sale on sundresses for the girlies.  I naturally could not pass by without just searching for hangers with the correct sizes.  My eldest daughter is in desperate need of summer clothes, now that school is out and with it goes the uniform!  So, I didn't feel too bad spending the money.  I bought her several and so the other two (well, really just the next in line) wouldn't feel bad I got them some too. 

This morning they decided to do a "fashion show" for dad, with all their new summer clothes.  I have to admit I picked some cute outfits.  But, the highlight of the entire experience came when my middle child walked out of the bathroom, slightly hunched over, and totally straight-faced, stating "this one is a little small."  I let her know it is because that particular, adorable little shorts jumpsuit belongs to her younger sister.

Let's not neglect the fact that this child wears a size 6 and the next in line wears a size 12.....months!

Go grab yourself a tissue....I PROMISE the tears, from laughing so hard, will eventually stop!
