Today a total stranger said I was beautiful. This hasn't happened to me in years. This may never have happened to me. She said, "You probably hear this all the time, but you are so beautiful."
Wow. What a thing to hear.
Sure, my family tells me this. And my husband too, of course. And I'm sure they mean it! But the people you love are always beautiful. I've never considered myself empirically pretty.
This cancer stuff is really working for me.
