Old Bathing Suit

With springtime here, I took my daughter bathing suit shopping yesterday. The picture shows the one I helped her pick out. She seams happy.

Just kidding. I did visit my Mom yesterday, and she still had the old bathing suit she was wearing in yesterday's old picture. My daughter put it on for this picture. Too bad I could not find a little monkey . . . I could have taken my daughter to the beach to make a modern redo of yesterday's picture.

  2. Oh, if only I could find a bathing suit like that today! I'm not fond of having to advertise my wares every time I want to swim.

  3. Sylvia,
    I really agree with you. I think that young women are pressured to wear skimpy swimwear, and then under extreme pressure to fit today's shallow definition of "Beauty", and a high premium is put on what they look like in these skimpy suits. Poor kids. We always raised our daughter to focus on discernment, wisdom, knowledge, judgement, skill, talent, generosity, and education. If you have those things, it does not matter too much whether you fit today's definition of beauty. She is now 18, and a delightful young lady.

  4. Very good points from everyone. We too raised our girls, now in their thirties,in much the same way and they turned out beautifully. Both graduated from Texas A&M with honors and have produced the most beautiful grandchildren anywhere. They will raise these girls in the same manner as they grew up and, with any luck, the circle will continue......... I really enjoy this blog!
