Another mum was lovely to me this morning. She didn’t say loads but she gave me some of the loveliest compliments I’ve ever had on my weight loss and looks.
Little did she know – she will now because she reads this blog! – that it meant such a lot.
As I wrote about yesterday, January was pretty rubbish and February hasn’t started amazingly and this morning, Poppy was just horrific, refusing to eat, then asking for porridge and throwing it away after three mouthfuls and crying saying she didn’t want to go to school.
Needless to say, I wasn’t in the best frame of mind when I finally dropped her off at 850am!
But then along came this lovely, beautiful friend and said these wonderful things. About me! It’s given me a proper smile – not fake – and a spring in my step for the day.
So never underestimate how you can change someone’s day and mindset, just by speaking a few kind words.
(and if you’ve read this, AK, thank you 😘)
