    Default A Compliment!

    Attachment 28601Attachment 28600I've been a regular sized person for 7 years now and no one comments on my weight. I say regular sized because I don't consider myself "skinny."

    Hiking in RMNP yesterday my husband and son chose snowshoes and I just put on my micro spikes. Saw a man skiing, talked a little, and told him I should have worn my snowshoes. He responded "Oh, you're just a little wisp of a thing, you won't sink in." Made my day. Just a little kindness from a stranger.

    One photo is from me playing around in the deep snow (hiked where it was packed pretty well), the other is a friend we met along the way.

    That's wonderful! A few months ago I was waiting in the parking lot at my doctor's office to be called in for my appointment. The person in the car next to me was being talked to by one of the nurses who came out to her car. They called me to come in but I had to wait until those people finished talking. They finished and the nurse who was talking to this person in the car saw me getting out. She knew I had been waiting for them to finish talking. She said, "my, aren't you a patient little person." I was so thrilled, I have never been called a "little person" in my life! I am kind of a little person, though, since I am 5'1". It is thrilling to be called small or little when we have never been called that, ever!
