Many of you know that I have a heartfelt conviction about wearing skirts. However, my dear hubby is not really a fan of skirts. I have more conviction about honoring his wishes, so I do not wear them full time. Every now and then, something happens to open my eyes about the subject. It has been said that people respond differently to you when you are in a skirt than when you are not. I had proof of this yesterday.
We were in a car accident last Friday. As a result, we are going to a chiropractor now. The first visit was Tuesday. I wore shorts and a t-shirt. Yesterday, I wore a skirt. Now, this was not an experiment I planned, but boy was it a lesson in opening my eyes to what I had been told. First off, when it was my turn to be adjusted, the doc offered me a blanket because I was wearing a skirt. My skirt was quite long, and I did not need one to maintain my modesty. Then, when the tech was placing me on heat I noticed she took more care to keep me covered than she had the previous day. Even the way they interacted with me was more reserved. So yes, people really do react differently when you are wearing a skirt than when you are not.
I think I shall make more of an effort to be more feminine. This is a challenge for me, because I am quite comfortable being a "tom boy". I know though that God created me to be so much more, and I will work to be what he created me to be.
