We all like to be recognized and sincerely complimented. So after a recent stay at a hotel, I pulled out the "We want to hear from you" insert and hand wrote a thank you for the nice accommodations and staffing. My Mom left a huge tip for the maid (hidden surprise under the bed pillow).
One of my neighbors is usually out in her yard weeding and gardening . She has one of the best yards on our street so I stopped and told her so. What a bright smile after that compliment.
I noticed and complimented a co-worker who cut her long hair into a shorter, more becoming hairstyle that framed her face and made her look younger....she was pleased too. She said many didn't even notice and she was very attached to the length.
I was also touched by a co-worker from another department that sent me an email thank-you (copying my boss) for the consistent responsiveness and thoroughness in my follow-up to all her inquiries. This had me smiling!
It's a little thing, a compliment or an acknowledgement but it sure has a big impact. I continue to look for all opportunities to share praise and gratitude with others on a daily basis.
You and your mum are Sunshine angels the world is much nicer to have you both around.
Thank you and lots of love.
So, I want to write, despite the strange streak of melancholy, and hence, this is written in indelible
characters upon my heart.
I love reading all your stories and your rhythmic prose is graceful and exquisite as the limpid stream;
These elements constitute the music of my life, I pirouette around them constantly.I wish I could see you and say
" Bright eyes, you simply rock ! "
I miss you very dearly.
With lots and lots and lots and lots of love,
its the little things that makes a big difference
im sure it made the staff very happy
DO WANT A "SWELLED" HEAD, HA!
JUST REMEMBER ONE SINCERE COMPLIMENT A DAY MAY BRIGHTEN SO MANY PEOPLE AND LIVES AS THEY WILL RESPOND IN KIND!
MEGA SMILES from Brighteyes ;)
Sweet story. Thanks for reminded me to be truthful and appreciate everyone.
