Looking in the Mirror...

When you give a mom a mirror...
Which is not very often- probably not enough,

She'll see frown lines
and freckles that must be cancerous,
and remember that she needs to put on sunscreen,
She remembers that she never put on much sunscreen in her days on the beach
surfing and swimming so
she will think she needs to go put sunscreen on her kids,
Putting sunscreen on her kids she will see their little faces and think
that maybe they do look like the eyes
that were staring out at her from the mirror,
That will make her think
that maybe she is the same girl after all.

She'll see time passing and like it.
