While I was going about my taskes today something nice happened. It had me in shock for a while actually. Guess there's been so much bad in my life lately I didn't know how to react to something good.
Anyways, I go every two weeks for a appointment. Every time there is this lady there....I don't know who she is or even what her name is. We have never said more than the polite hi to each other before. Today she suprised me. She looks me right in the face and says you've lost weight haven't you? After picking my jaw up off the floor I blushed and said why yes yes I have. She says it shows. And then proceeded to tell me that I was pretty and had a pretty face and smile. She didn't stop there either. She told me to keep up the good work and remember not to go to far with the weight loss but loose just enough to give those skinny girls a run for their money. Of course I am like oh I couldn't give those girls a run for their money I don't look that good. To which she replies....you look good and I bet you feel better with the weight off. Which I had to agree. And as I walk past her for my appointment she reaches up and says don't forget you are a very pretty girl and don't let anyone tell you different. I told her thanks and went on to do my thing.
Later I thought about it and told myself that lady had no idea how much I needed to hear that right now. And I took a minute to say ok GOD I hear ya....I am pretty....I get the message now. And with that my mood lightened and I just felt good the rest of the day. Even when some bad things reared their heads I kept thinking about the comment from that lady. And realized that's what everyone has been trying to tell me all along. NB told me I have a nice smile. Flyrodder, Elf, and many others told me I was pretty. Nessa and Hellz have told me for years how pretty I was. I just never let it sink in I guess until today. So I am taking this oppurtunity to say thank you to that lady again even though she won't ever see this and to thank those who always tried to tell me but I just couldn't see.
I hope this reminds everyone that just a simple thing can make the world of difference in a persons life. So take the time to stop and make someone feel good about themselves today.

Fuzzy, I'm so glad you have finally realized that we were not lieing to you, or just saying it to make you feel better. I appauld this woman for her courage to say those wonderful & true words to you even tho you really don't know each other. I agree her words could not have come at a better time for you. You must remember her words always, you must never forget that you are a very pretty lady.|
