I heaved a big sigh, “I’m forty.”
“Mom, I think you’re very, very pretty.” I gave her a puzzled look wondering where such a comment was coming from. “Really, I think you’re very, very pretty.”
“Well, thank you,” I finally smiled and accepted the compliment.
“But I think you were much prettier when you were younger.”
I burst out laughing! I couldn’t help it! My laughter worried her a little. When I could speak once more I gently told her that yes most people look better when they are young, but it would be kinder to leave that part off when giving someone a compliment! I thought it was funny.
