than when you are talking to your daughter.
I spoke yesterday at the Alpha Delta Kappa Southeastern Region Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Alpha Delta Kappa is an organization for women educators. The talk was on how to consciously develop sisterhood and understanding, and this dynamic, fun group of women was just the perfect audience for a conversation like that. After the talk, a woman shared with me that one of her friends had recently had a baby and was lamenting that she wasn’t already back to her pre-pregnancy size. She said she looked at her, incredulously, and said, “You have never been more beautiful than when you are talking to your daughter.” What a beautiful thing to notice and what a powerful compliment to share with a friend.
More soon, I have to go undig my desk…
