Missed Opportunity

Friday, February 25, 2011

The other night, my daughters best friend was over and when her mother picked her up, we visited. She said to me "You look like you've lost a lot of weight!" These are the words we all dream of hearing. I have read about everyones struggles to respond to this type of a statement and had even thought of how I would respond if/when it ever was said to me. Why is it that I sheepishly turned my head and said, "yeah, a little bit." Then she asked me "How much?" I told her around 30 pounds. She said "That's a lot!" I am proud of my accomplishment and that she noticed. I wish I had handled it better! I hope I get another chance.

    If you can't think of anything to say when caught off guard like that, the perfect thing to say is a big thank you!!!
