The lines on my face are proof of a good life. They mean I have laughed and smiled and cried.
I have squinted from the beautiful sunlight. I have sat in the sand on beautiful beaches and soaked up the calm of the waves, eyes closed, face to the sun.
I have covered my eyes because I didn’t want to face things. I was scared. I didn’t want to see.
I have these lines around my eyes because my kids make me smile every day. I am alive and express my emotions with my eyes.
I have a beautiful life and these lines are my proof. I am lucky, and it shows on my face.
