"Oh, I could not do that"
"Oh, that would be bragging"
"Oh, I can't think of many things I love about MYself"
Shock, indignation, confusion.
Sad, very sad.
I am the mother of a fabulous old lady. She's only 40 and is already fabulous. If she stays on course, one day she will be a fabulous "old" lady.
It isn't easy, this route to FabulousGrannyVille. There will be lots of road blocks along the way. The route is for some, more tortuous than others. Bad relationships, failed marriages, deaths of loved ones, financial problems, loneliness and that famous killer of Fabulous, illness. But the effort will be worth it. I'm glad she started early and like to think that I played a big role in mapping out the course, starting on the day she was born.
