Every woman experiences some silver moments in her lifetime! They are so wonderful when they happen, that it is almost impossible to forget them.  

Think about this for just a moment!  

As a woman, in your mind's eye, they may appear as special memories from different periods of your life, or unique moments that have taken place during your lifetime. For one reason or another, each one shines like treasured silver that has been carefully polished and stored in your memory bank.

Take a really good look in the mirror for just a moment. Do you see a silver thread among the gold yet? If you don't see one, you probably will one of these days. Don't let that reality frighten you. It happens!    

When you do start seeing some silver in your hair, which will occur over a period of time, you will more than likely have just as many silver moments to remember in your lifetime, as you have silver hairs upon your head. Love that gray!

If you look closely at the some of the photographs of your grandmothers, mothers or aunts, you will probably see them as having, or having had, some silver moments in their lives too. You might be able to recall the very first time that they or you, started to see some gray streaks in their hair. Was that a shock to them then, or perhaps to you? No woman really expects to go gray.  

But let's talk about silver for a moment. As a metal, it has been used over the years, by many wonderfully gifted artisans, to create many beautiful things, like teapots, bowls, candlesticks, etc. Many of those items are still reasonably well preserved, because they have been well cared for over time. Perhaps some of them have been lost, damaged, or have become tarnished, over the years. Maybe you still have a few treasured silver items that have been passed down to you, through the generations.    

Remember that silver, like everything else, is only for a time. Its degree of permanency, as with any of the other metallic elements, remains relatively limited. Eventually, it will disappear on the horizon of time too.    

By now, there are probably some unique silver moments in your lifetime, that you think you will treasure forever. There may be other moments as well, which have come and gone and perhaps you know that you might not ever be able to recall them again, if you don't write them down. Taking time to document some of those silver moments, while you are still able to do so, is a really good idea.  

Always remember to treasure all of the silver moments that have been given to you, during your lifetime and the silver hairs upon your head. They are gifts that have been given to you, if only for a time.

    • I stopped pulling them out. They aren’t that bad. My silver are some of the strongest hairs on my head. And they really stand out. I’ve been bonding with them.....
      I forgot about my Grandmother’s silver which I keep locked away. It has such sentimental value for me I would fight my own young over it. Interesting comparison.

    • Hi ladybug,

      I have a beter idea! Save your Grandmother’s silver for a few more years and then pass it along, rather than fight with your children over it. They would probably love to inherit it!    

      Save a few of those strong gray hairs for them too!

      Have a great day!

    • I intend to do just that. When the kids left home it seemed like they tried to take everything they could get their hands on. My son called one day and asked me ship him the art off the walls. They moved and tried to take their childhood with them. ....well, I just put it all up and forgot about it instead of enjoying it. The value is in giving it as it was given to me. Obviously they aren’t ready but they will be.
      As for my gray, they don’t bother me. They add substance.

    • Love this! I went “au natural” this year. I’ve had mixed reviews, but I’m happy with my new silvery self. Saves me money too! Got my last coffee at McD’s for 27 cents!
