White Shorts


As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

-Audrey Hepburn

I grabbed my daughter’s four year old hand and sprinted to the entrance of CVS. I had just gotten my period and had absolutely nothing to stop the flow. I noticed that my girl’s little legs were having trouble keeping up, so I picked her up and prayed the effort would not wreak havoc on my white shorts. Definitely not a good idea wearing white, when I knew my period was on its way.

I opened the door, asked the girl at the front checkout where their tampons were, followed her instructions, and headed to the back of the store to the feminine care section. The store was jam packed with like a million people looking for last minute somethings. My baby girl kissed my cheek with a loud smack and said, “I love you, Mommy.” My beautiful girl could always sense my stress.

I smiled and kissed her back. When I reached the section, I whispered, “Thank you, CVS, for stocking Organyc®.” Organyc leaves you with a safe and secure sensation because they are only made with 100% pure organic cotton — inside and out. Most other nationally-advertised feminine care brands are made of synthetics, like rayon, cellulose (wood pulp) and super absorbent material.
