Mirror, Mirror

Today I was helping out on a retreat with a group of 8th graders at a local parish and one of the lady volunteers gave a talk on self-image. She held up one of those makeup mirrors – you know, one of those compact things. She mentioned that she carries it in her purse wherever she goes. Wow. I don’t even own one of those things, do you? When I think of those, I think of elegant older ladies and their brocade purses…I don’t know why!
