A Woman of Excellence

How would you feel if you asked a friend how your outfit looked on you today and she said,

No worries! It’s mediocre.

Would you go change? What if you made your family supper and asked how it tasted and they said,

Thanks. It’s mediocre

We’d be disappointed, right? Why then should we settle for making

Add those chocolate chips in there and you have a delicious cookie without the guilt!
