I’m in love


I have been married a long time, so I had to break the news gently to my husband. There is someone else. Our marriage is still secure, however my affection was poured out yesterday when—ladies, have you guessed?  I found the hairdresser.  I have had some good cuts since we arrived, but until yesterday not just the right magic. She got my hair, knew my vision…only better. I left with a full head of curls, curls I hadn’t seen in a gazillion years. Without a curling iron. Sigh. I told her “big hair”, she asked “When did you graduate?”  I might just never leave Indiana now. Goodbyes are too hard…


About christasterken

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
