That's so right!

And when I think of a classy person I think of one who maintains composure under fire. Like averting a verbal barrage or sidestepping an insult with a smile. I'm thinking the word I want is "aplomb."

Aplomb LOL A word I've not heard in many years; perhaps due to the rarity of that quality. Big Grin

Aplomb is the perfect word.

I haven't heard it in a long time either, but seem to find it on my mind more often in recent years. Not that I've noticed anyone who fits the word necessarily, but most often I find myself wishing they did. *Blush*

Zany, you already have both, it's a part of you, but you have to reach deep inside to find it. You show it in many ways already, but you might not be aware of it because it's buried deeply, and maybe you mistook it for courage when you did show it. It's the quiet you show in adversity, the stance you take in hurtful situations, it's the grace you wear in troubled times. And I know this because I can read it in your words. It's right there with you whenever you need it. Lovey dubby

Aw *Blush* I am getting to old to dig deep. Maybe I can try watering it and feeding it so it can grow to the surface.

I will work on it though, I think, A classy lady who met life with aplomb would make a lovely epitaph. Angel

I have a magic heart. It reads your words and perceives that which is in your heart too. That's how I know Zany so well. It's also how I know your heart, too, Nap. And the hearts of our other dear friends here. Lovey dubby

Can you read minds too? Do you know what I'm thinking?

You are thinking that we're all very much alike and how thankful we are to be open to others so that we can be forgiving and supportive and understanding to those whose lives we sometimes touch.

And may we always, always, be where we need to be and help whomever we are supposed to help. And if we ever fail to do that, let us be shown how to correct our own failures.

Close?
