I have decided to make this a short read. I am very sleepy. It is after 1 a.m. However, I do not want to miss a day. It would delay my completing my 31-day blogging challenge.
I thought about my best physical features, and there are three things people compliment me regularly.
When I was a child in elementary school, people always told me I had pretty legs. I would smile but thought nothing of it. I wanted to be pretty.
At seventeen, I started receiving compliments on both my legs and my waistline. I had a 24-inch waist until 1989. I know you want to know how I could pinpoint it to that year. That was the year my son died in a car accident. It was the year I went from 124 pounds to 232 pounds. I have not had a 24-inch waist since.
In 1995, I took the buyout from Pacific Bell. I decided when I left; I would speak and smile at everyone I met regardless of their reaction.
It was difficult in the beginning, but not anymore. Now I receive compliments on my warm, friendly smile and my ability to get along with people of all races. Friends have told me, my smile transforms my face and makes them feel comfortable and accepted. I am grateful I can do that.
You have three of my physical features that have played a part in creating the person I am today. Thank you for letting me know. It means a great deal to me. Tomorrow I will tell my five favorite blogs. Until then, stay safe, and keep the faith.
