The three life-stages are nicely depicted through the mirror, and it's warming to sense the self acceptance in the final stage. Well done.
I thought that the tenses were a bit mixed at times, flipping between present and past, eg. "The grey at my temples is showing again, and I'd forgotten to put on make-up." In this instance, ...."I'VE forgotten to put on make-up" might've worked better.
It's lovely to think that Laurie shares your peace and pleasure. All the best with your writing.

Interesting take on how our attitudes towards ourselves changes. I'm not sure it really fit the subject of the week.

I liked how you reveal the MCs character through the shifting perspectives in the mirror.
