Yesterday, we attended my husband’s company ball. Since it was a one time event, I figured I wouldn’t buy a new dress and just look for some clothes in my closet that may fit the occasion. Alas, I found a simple black dress.
Three years ago, I wore the same dress to another company event. Back then, I was a tad lighter, stronger and younger. I also didn’t have a child and lived in another place and time. What a difference three years make. Physically, I look older and heavier.
However, I am happy. Happiness is being able to fit into the dress which reminds me of warm & sunny days when we were young & free.
