We literally live 3 blocks from church. The last few weeks I think to myself, as my knees freeze and a cold breeze goes up my skirt, “I really should wear pantyhose”.
But I forget and don’t buy any.
Today walking with my daughter, she comments how her legs are cold. I say to her, “Ailsa you should wear pantyhose!” She, with her beautiful analytical mind, points out that I don’t have any on myself.
I laugh of course, she doesn’t, she is following my example.
Kids do that they follow us, our actions, our words, ideas, habits…
Cold knees really get me thinking- What am I teaching her that isn’t going to serve her in her life?
On a high note: I wasn’t wearing high heels! Sometimes I’m smart when I pick my foot wear.
