There was a young girl at church that has a big faux fur jacket and while she likes the jacket, she was little afraid to wear it out. So, I told her I would wear my fluffy coat too and I would have her back. In the blog-perfect version of this story, this little girl would realize that it is OK to be different and we would hug it out as some Celine Dion song plays in the background and doves, dyed in rainbow colours, fly off into the sunset. In the real-life version of this story, I didn't even really see the little girl again when I wore my jacket to church this week. But I was very warm. And I kept my word. It was important to keep your word because if you start lying to little kids, you are either a bad person... or a parent.
