Webster defines flexibility as a ready capability to adapt to new, different, or changing requirements. Flexibility has definitely been our “word of the month” for January. Snow days have had us arranging, and then rearranging, appointments that were meant to catch us up from December’s hiatus. Last week, Morgan said “I’m full of January. Turn the page.” Agreed. 😉 All that to say, I have to give Allison the prize for being our most flexible family member so far this year. See that pretty silver statue below? It’s not as concrete as it appears. Here’s her story…
I remember Allison calling me, very excited. She was going to get to model in a bridal show, have her hair and makeup done, and receive some portraits for her time. On day one all the girls were fitted with dresses, then given different call times for the next day. Allison arrived and, after waiting quite a while, she and two other girls were told they would be living statues. She called me, very disappointed. There would be no bridal hairdo and makeup, no bridal shots. They had clearly misled her and the others. She had a decision to make; walk out and leave them short a statue, or stay and make the most of it. As you can see, she shined in this situation. Pardon the pun. 😉
People don’t always treat us right, but I do believe when we do what’s right regardless, it comes back to us. I couldn’t be prouder of Allison. I told her one day she would look back and laugh about this. After seeing the shots, she’s already had a few giggles. 😉 And she will be a beautiful bride this coming September.
