Words Can Heal

Then, today, out of the blue, I got a message from a different childhood friend that I've known maybe since 40 years. We hung out in many of the same circles, but we haven't talked in decades.
In the message she tells me I'm an amazing person and an inspiration to others and that people should tell me how awesome I am on a regular basis.
This was so unexpected, but it came at the perfect time, right after I was hurt by someone from that same era.
I'm posting this to tell you that your kind words may mean far more than you know, and may be just what the person receiving them needs at that moment in their life.
I hope she realizes how much I appreciate her, her message, her words, and her kindness.
