The Granny Club
My good friend Karen recently bought my Beauty and Wisdom book for her granddaughter for Christmas and I was so touched I wanted to share her story. Here is the email she sent me.
I want to give one to my granddaughter. We have a thing about what we call "The Granny Club." It's kind of like a beauty and wisdom joke in its own way.
Granny KB: "You have to brush your hair because you haven't since you went swimming and if you go out to dinner looking like that I could get kicked out of "The Granny Club."
For years, Micol thought there really was a Granny Club and cried when she heard the truth. I felt awful but we have made a big joke out of it as the years have passed.
Micol is the only person who cuts my hair for some years now so, in a sense, she is my stylist! I thought it would empower her to think she could do something so important and using scissors too. But in fact it is a tender and empowering thing for me too--like going to the salon. She says my hair is beautiful and she loves the "silver parts"! She's messed up a couple of times but with my hair it doesn't really matter. She loves to do it. Funny, huh? I think she will like your book very much.
Thank you Karen, I am so honored to have my book given to your sweet granddaughter... Micol obviously already possesses so much beauty and wisdom!
