Since the day Patty and I were married, we’ve always found a way to send “reminders” to each other when something important is going on in our lives. We call them “Mirror Messages.” All you need is some lipstick and a bathroom mirror! Some people choose to send flowers. Our exchange of choice is the mirror message. We do the mirror messages when something is hanging over our heads; one of us is out of town for a few days or even sometimes a simple “I love you” mirror message is just a reminder to the other that “Hey! I love you!”
I thought I’d share these pictures as our most recent mirror message. These mirror messages started a couple of months ago when Patty initially had the prognosis that the cancer had metastasized and it was “incurable.” It started with the reminder to Patty that “You and I are a team!” (this was a reminder that she was not alone in this battle!) Then the messages morphed on the mirror as we waited for all the test results. “Keep it in the boob!” (That was in hopes that the cancer hadn’t spread.) Then you see “Lord, we love you and trust in you…” Then we got the good news that the cancer hadn’t spread and they were treating for cure. I wrote: “God loves us… and answered our prayers!” Patty added the “Amen!!”
These mirror messages stayed up at least a month. They do get in the way at times! It gets kind of tough to “prep” in the morning before work.
Obviously this is one of my favorites!
There you have it! Mirror Messages!
