My husband just emailed me a transcript of a conversation he had with a coworker today:
Coworker: You got your hair cut!
Husband: Yeah, I did. Y'know, it's funny that nobody noticed yesterday. My wife sez—
Coworker: YOUR WIFE . . . LOOKS AMAZING.
I mean, I saw her at the Christmas party, and I was all . . .
*hand on chin, squinting*
*finger on nose, thinking*
But, I mean, she looks just awesome! How . . . ?
Husband: She's lost, like, 50 lbs.
Coworker: I KNOW! It's amazing! She just, oh, I, you HAVE to tell her, 'cause she . . .
*does "We're not worthy" bowing motion*
She looks incredible, and it's really . . . it's a real inspiration.
I'd be lying if I said I don't have tears in my eyes. Like, wow. I feel absolutely blessed, humbled, and grateful beyond words for such lovely comments. I was feeling myself start to slip again today as post-New Year's motivation was waning, but this is better motivation than anything.
