Today I got an email from Susan, a journalist and Academy Award-winning filmmaker — someone I admire greatly.
I had written her a personal note on my holiday card to her… and she clearly appreciated it.
My dear Erica,
I was so blown away by your holiday message that i don’t know if I’ll ever recover.
I’ve decided to keep it near so that when I feel frustrated, depressed or unloved, I have your words as the ideal tonic to uplift my spirits.
Thank you so much for your overwhelming compliments. As my grandmother used to say, “Flatter me, I can stand a lot.”
