But, what I learned that what breaks forth from the uglies is something, pure and good and deep down raw.
I have had a need to have a case of the uglies. Life can sometimes get hard and chaos seems to take over at a time when I just can't afford to have the uglies.
My twin sister was sharing with me years ago, attending a funeral of her husband's grandmother. She said that she looked at the body in the casket and burst into tears. She had the case of the uglies. Her husband thought she was grieving and began rubbing her back and consoling her. Later, she admitted that she wasn't crying because of the grief, although it was quite sad but she was crying because who ever had embalmed Grandma, had turned her green. I'm so very thankful that I wasn't there. We both would've had a bad case of the uglies....snot flying every where, tissues being shredded and then wadded up and tucked away in our purses, not knowing what to do with it.
After laughing about Grandma Green Face, we acknowledged how much we needed a case of the uglies.
I feel the uglies rearing up something fierce lately. The only thing is, my sister isn't here to share the uglies with. It just doesn't do justice to have a case of the uglies all by myself.
Do you have a sister/friend that you know you can share the uglies with? I want to hear all about it!
