Years ago I was talking to a woman I worked with about my 2 years old daughter and how feminine she was. I joked that she sure didn't get that from me. And the gal said, "what are you talking about, you are very feminine."
I had no idea that this was how I appeared to other people. I asked a couple of friends who told me she was right. It is very possible that our pictures of ourselves do not match what others see in us.
moonfairy - now I am anxious to see a picture of you! :-)
