Thank you, Jiffypop. This is powerful. Your above post is well-stated. The author's words spoke strongly - I remember my mom's statement when I was young, that she couldn't wear a particular coat because she'd look like a potato sack tied in the middle. I didn't understand that - we didn't really HAVE potato sacks. I remembered it as just a potato tied in the middle and thought it referred to the brown color of the coat. But I also remember my father saying the one exercise she needed to do was to just push herself back from the table. And I tell myself that - just add in pushing myself from the table. It's amazing what we carry forward.
