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.

Karen and Mini
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!
