Yeah AGMA did!
I really love this picture. My fabulous ink artist (Joey) took it right after she finished my tattoo.
The agony and the ecstasy.
I know it looks massive but it’s not really all that large. I cropped it so you can’t see the flab on my back. Or all the brown spots. AGMA had no idea I had so many brown spots on my back.
What’s that all about?
My tat’s on my upper right scapula (that’s shoulder blade to the non-anatomy geek) and the blue larkspur is flowing over my shoulder. Kinda girly.
I’m so grateful to Joey for pulling together all my crazy, random AGMA thoughts and Pinterest tattoo pictures into a design that I absolutely love. But I do realize that it’s not everybody’s cup of tea…
I wanted a running theme because I believe that taking up running when I was 59 totally changed my life. For the better. For the way better.
But I also wanted to incorporate my family in the design. They are, after all, the most important thing on earth to me.
AGMA’s getting mushy.
So the flowers coming out of the soul (get it?) of my shoe are my family’s birth month flowers. I knew you would be wondering…
Holly for December, snowdrops for January, lily and larkspur for July. And violets for my sweet, little baby granddaughter…who happens to be named Violet.
AGMA thinks there’s room for more flowers if my son and DIL decide to have a third and he/she’s not born in December, January or July. That would be fun.
But I think I’m going to go back to Joey to get something else added. In a couple of months. As soon as I recover from this first round. It was kinda ouchy.
Beneath the stem, I’d like to add “2 Timothy 4:7”
If you look it up in the New Testament (NIV) 2 Timothy 4:7 says, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
AGMA likes that.
Thanks for going on this fantastic journey with me!
Aging gracefully my ass.
