I have a longer post coming soon, but for now I wanted to highlight these two nice things people said to me on Saturday.
Nice thing #1:
Scene: The boys’ soccer game had just ended. Their team lost (barely) but they played really well.
Coach: Pam, can I talk to you over here?
Me (thinking): Uh oh, what’d I do? I’m in trouble.
Coach: I just wanted to tell you that your boys are a delight to coach. They’re so well-behaved and are really supportive to their teammates. They just have great attitudes, unlike some of the other players on the team. I just wanted to let you know.
Me (is it dusty here or what?): Thank you, that’s so kind!
Nice thing #2:
Scene: Cute little sewing store. I went in “real quick” to pick up some fabric since they were having a sale that ended that day. Miles came in with me, the rest of the fam was in the van outside, frothing at the mouth because I was “taking so long.” Pleeeeease. But look at the pretty fabric I got!
Fancy Uptown older lady: Did you make that shirt?
Me: This old thing? (Not really, I didn’t say that.)
FUOL: That’s really nice! What pattern is it?
I tell her. She looks carefully at the seams and admires the bias binding. I self-deprecatingly say it’s not perfect, and I only started sewing recently. She says some more complimentary things, and some of my imposter syndrome around sewing fades. (Some, not all.)
One thought on “Some nice things”
You deserve every bit of that praise and more!
