Today while I was out running in the rain, I passed an old man who was out for a walk and he said, "You get an A for being hearty." I said, "Thanks" with a smile and kept going. I thought that I would have rather him given me an A for being skinny or fit or fast, but I'll take my compliments when I get them.
Then I started thinking about those compliments that people give you that are not really compliments. It was funny to me while I was running, so I decided to share my list with you.
*You look so healthy!
*Wow! You got your hair cut!
*You are just glowing!
*How did you do in your little race?
*Your hair is getting so long!
*That outfit is something else!
*You're so lucky you don't have to worry about your weight.
In defense of the compliment givers, I'm sure their intentions were good...most of the time, anyway!
Feel free to add to the list! Maybe I should save them for my best enemy!!
