No Regrets

'You'll be sorry!" I think those annoying words fall 2nd to only "I told you so!" Our response, even if silent is something like "Get off my back!"

At the age of 17 my older sister, Lauree had beautiful long brown hair. If you were a young girl in the mid 1960's you'll remember the popular "flip" hairstyle. She wore it in all its' splendor! She decided she wanted a change.

Personally in earlier years I changed my hair more than purses! The first time I met my new bother-in-law he commented he was not sure what I looked like; because in pictures my family showed him, my hair was never the same!

Well, my sister shared her plans of a hair cut with our older sister, Donna. She tried to talk her out of it and giving up probably remarked, "You'll be sorry!" Lauree got a new stylish bob and looked perk and happy. Several months later the drama continued

Christmas came and we were opening our wrapped packages. Lauree began to open one marked from my oldest sister, nicknamed "Midge." In those days she smoked (quit ages ago!) and tearing off the paper she could see a carton of cigarettes. Even at the going price of $2.98 she thought it was a nice gift. Our older sister told her to look inside. Remember the phrase "You'll be sorry?" She thought Lauree would have regrets; so she swept up the hair and gave it to her for Christmas! I'm sure she likely gave her another present; but it could not compare to the laughs we all shared over the treasured locks of hair!

Do you carry the burden of regrets, live in the land of "If only I?" Smile, what you give up might come back to you tied up in ribbons!

Devotionals are her first love in writing. Published articles in Mature Living Magazine, Devotions for the Deaf, The Secret Place, Light from the Word, Coosa Journal, With God Daily, Mary Hollingsworth's The One Year Devotional of Joy and Laughter.
