During a very difficult time in my life, when I hit my 30th birthday and also my papers showing my divorce had finalized, my mother sent me a book called Color Me Beautiful. My first marriage was hard for my three children and I. My husband, their father was gone more than he was home. In heated arguments I would accuse him of being married to the street, not me. Gambling and drinking was his first love and we fell by the wayside. It took me all the courage I could muster to give him an ultimatum, either go for counseling or I was getting a divorce.
I beat myself up over the fact that I was not more important to my husband than his "habits". I cried for the kids and I. I called my mother long distance from NYC to Michigan and told her my children would never have a father and I would never be happily married. I felt so unloved and undesirable, and my mom in her desire to help tried to boost my ego. Moms are so loving. They always see their child in the best light.
If you get a chance, check out this book. It divides people into four color groups. Mine is summer. So as I took pictures and put them together to post on RedGage, it dawned on me, this is my color palette. The colors of your season will bring a glow to your cheeks and help you to look your very best.
