What I’m thankful for today is unsolicited compliments.
Generic, yes. But I am. More specifically, when I least expect it, someone just one two punches me into feeling awesome.
A few weeks ago my grandma sent me this in an email:
When you talk about Claire’s good character, look in the mirror, that is where she gets it. Remember, I have known you since you were born and know what a good person you always have been…Love you, Grandma
And I sat there in awe. I got a compliment from my grandma saying that both myself and my daughter are good people.
I felt amazing.
Compliments are free. They are also freeing.
And I am so thankful for them.
