Are you Fabulous?

Bazaar Magazine is currently running a contest and is asking women to write in and tell them, in 50 words or less, how “Fabulous” they are. They are going to pick someone in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and do an article on them (the winners also get $5,000 each and some prizes).
I thought to myself, “Hey, I’m pretty fabulous” so I started writing. Ha! There is NO WAY anyone can tell someone how fabulous they are in 50 words or less. Come on – try it. I double dog dare you.
All I could say was, “I’ve been married 40 years to a man who thinks I’m fabulous. I have two married daughters who say I’m their best friend. And my two grandchildren run through my front door saying, ‘hey, hey, hey Gramma’ and jump in my arms. That’s pretty fabulous.” - I win.

(Now my husband thinks I'm obnoxious - but I say, "Hey, if I don't like me, who else will??")

I like your response. You can now reward yourself with prizes and $5,000. What are you going to do next? Go to Disneyland of course. With those wonderful grand children.

Hey mom, "you ARE fabulous"... just like you told me to write.
