There I was, in a crowded room,
not exactly sure who to talk to,
when a friend I hadn’t seen in a while,
walked up behind me, leaned in
and whispered in my ear:
“I just wanted to tell you
that I love reading your blog.”
I quickly turned to her,
gave her a quick warm hug and said
“Oh Kathy, Thank You So Much!”
I’m not sure we spoke again
the entire evening but it didn’t matter;
that quick little statement meant the world to me.
I smiled the entire evening.
Every body needs a kind word now and again.
Receiving a compliment when we least expect it,
makes it all that more special.
Don’t assume someone is full of confidence and joy.
We all have difficult days; some more than others.
So when you know something good
or see something beautiful – share it.
Don’t hold those thoughts inside.
Expressing kind words can change
a person’s entire outlook
and just may be what she needs to push forward.
So, until you hear something kind,
I’m here to tell you how special you are
and that when you smile, you look beautiful! ♡
