One of my goals this year is to share my energy, thoughts, and encouragement more often. After losing my brother so unexpectantly I've thought a lot about how precious our time is and the words left unsaid.
One of the best things my brother told me happened last January and I swear I will never forget it. I was dancing in the United Way Fundraiser and afterward, he gave me a card and said I don't think I have ever told you this but I think you are pretty amazing, Those words stopped me right in my track and moved me to tears. I had always been the kid sister who drove him crazy and now he was telling me that I was cool! Words are a gift that you can give someone and you have no idea how long someone might hang on to them. They meant a lot to me then and mean even more now.
Some days you just need to hear a compliment or get a simple pat on the back. It's so crazy to me what a few simple words of encouragement can do. You never know how much your words can mean to someone and I am often surprised at how people hold back from sharing. If you think something positive, why not share those thoughts with them? So if you are still reading (wink😉 wink), let me just say, thanks for sharing this little moment with me and I think you are 🤩 awesome!
