Sometimes you say the right thing

Talking to an adult child is always a tricky thing.  You have to tell them what they need to hear, but not always what they want to hear.   And you can't ground them. 

I remember one particular time when my mother said exactly the right thing.   I told her I was getting married to someone she had never met.   She said, "I'm sure you made a good choice."   Wow.  Maybe she spent days practicing that, but it sure came out at the right time.

My daughter, also a blogger, did a post on things not to say to a new mother.    Very funny, but a little blue, but totally on point.  Especially the very last section what people should say,but don't.  And guess who said the right thing?

Me,that's who.  I rock!
