Holly and Heather’s Helpful Hint: Appreciation and Kind Words Today
This may sound morbid to think about but did you ever read an obituary or hear a story on the news about someone who passed away and people were talking so nicely about the person – all recalling their good deeds and kindness toward others and what great people they were. It makes us wonder, did these people hear all that great stuff about them when they were still alive?
Think of your loved ones. Haven’t they done things, big and small, that deserve acknowledgement and praise? Are they living their lives admirably, working hard, providing meals or doing kind thoughtful acts that you just don’t even think to acknowledge? Think about it now; maybe your child is giving their all at school or working hard on a team or in a club. Maybe your significant other has always helped out at a doctor’s appointment or washed your car. Or maybe your mom hand crafts you some great things for your home and she is terrific at it!
Thank them, acknowledge them, tell them how proud you are! Don’t wait for a retirement speech, award acceptance or eulogy they will never hear to acknowledge someone’s beautiful way of living their life. Tell them now what a great person they are!
