Looked in the mirror one day
The person in there wasn’t me
There was some fat lady there
 Wondering how on earth she
Got that way.
Ran into an old friend the other day,
She said, “How nice to see you!
Congratulations, when’s the baby due?”
Running back to the days of old,
I was so thin, they called me Bones
Six feet tall and 135, they said I didn’t
Eat enough to keep a scarecrow alive.
Well, the scarecrow is alive and well,
But as for me, I look like hell!

Dear Mary, wonderfully tall to carry it all!

~~ Thankfully it's said that the 'you' who looks in the mirror is not the 'True You'....

Love and Smiles, Suzie xox :-)
