Obviously I must have misheard that comment. I turned to a lady in church and asked her what did her kid really say to me. And to my amazement she reassured me that I heard just what I thought. Apparently my jacket with padded shoulders, which I didn’t have on all the way, looked like a cape to him, so the curly blond three year old gave me a compliment that I looked like a SUPERMAN!!!!! It’s very hard to leave me speechless, as you might have guessed by now, but what do you say to this comment? Especially when you are dressed overly lady-like with a pencil skirt, heels and even jewelry. Well you can’t respond negatively to an excited smile of a child who thinks superman is the best thing ever, so I thanked him and carried on the conversation I was trying to have and now, I obviously felt waaaay more confident with my new extra powers!
With extra pressures loaded on me in the last few days, I secretly wish that this, being superman to other people and rescuing them in times of trouble, would be me! Yet so far, this whole story has been completely flipped, and I am still in position of being the one who needs rescuing, needing that last minute miracle, those people who will save the day for me, offer help and listen along the way! To all of those who have already done this for me over the weekend, thank you! I feel overwhelmed for your support, help, and yes, amazing superman powers of rescuing me when I need it most. And once I get through Monday, please call me Tuesday to save your day! I’ll be beyond thrilled to use my magic powers. Yours truly, Yuliya.
