roasted

Saturday I dressed for my shopping date with my husband. I wore white shorts and a white cammi with a light blue/pink/white button up over it with only the bottom couple buttons done up to keep the shirt together.
Bill and I went to a Goodwill in Fishers (upscale thrift store!). We had to be home in time for the kids to use the van for a church dance. When I came in Tawny said, "Nice cleavage mom!".
Now we follow the guidelines in the For the Strength of Youth. We have had to make specific 'rules' to keep the subjective nature of this counsel from getting out of hand. Shorts should come no higher than about 4 or 5 inches above the knee. Shirts should have no less than a cap sleeve, no cammies or tanks. And tops should not show cleavage.
Bill supported Tawny's observation. I asked him why on earth he didn't say something earlier...he said all he saw was how good I looked, I forgave him. For some reason my girls have inherited much larger cup sizes than I have, so I could wear a shirt cut down to my navel, and there wouldn't be any 'cleavage', - at least that's what I thought.
As happens so often in my life, good examples seem to go un-noticed, and bad examples are held up and framed. The next day two of my girls wore similar top combos to church the next day. So have I learned my lesson? I hope so.
