"I see you 🦢 just a swimming and making it look graceful"

This was said to me this morning on discord...

It made me tear up a little. I am more ugly duckling than swan... graceful, despite being attached to my middle name, is not something I am. There is a reason I quit ballet. 😬

Swans are beautiful, and sleek... most days my hair doesn't even get brushed...and when it does, five minutes later you can't tell... my clothes have holes from dog and cat claws, I've got scars, and scratches, and bruises from falling or bumping into things.

Just yesterday my forehead connected with the corner of my car door when I bent to put my sneakers on...only to bump my head on the door frame of my car later...

So... for someone else to see me as graceful in any way, well it made me smile and giggle a little... the tears were just something in my eye... probably poked myself...

Thank you for those kind words H
