Last night, I attended a Christmas dinner with my sister, Juana and BFF, Jackie. Everyone was dressed in their finery and the compliments were whizzing by like bullets: “You look awesome”; “Love your dress”; “Looking great!” At one point, a lady turned to me and said, “You must be getting sick of people always telling you how good you look.” I thought about it for a moment and said, “Naw!”
Even when I look like my “Before” picture, I still get showered with compliments everywhere I go in my small town. Now come on folks, I know deep inside that when people say, “You look great”, they mean “For someone with cancer”, but hey I’m 44, I’ll take what I can get. Yeah, I’m really going to miss those compliments when I recover.
Tip: If you have cancer, get used to people commenting on how you look, and learn to graciously accept a compliment. A simple “thank you” will suffice.
