A Simple Compliment Goes A Long Way

A lovely post on compliments.

Adventures of a Busy Mom

I'm part of Post A Day 2016

On the way home from school yesterday, I overheard a conversation between my kids (4 & 7 years old).

My son: “You know what, Sissy? Sometimes, I’m just so proud that you’re my sister.”

My daughter: “Me to. I’m proud of  you too!”

As you can imagine, this resulted in a huge smile on my face. I think I might have actually grabbed at my heart a little bit too because it was just so stinking cute.

This simple conversation has been on my mind ever since.

It made me stop and question how often I compliment people. I don’t mean the expected compliments like, “you did great in today’s basketball game.” I mean the random, out of nowhere compliments like my son gave my daughter.

Compliments like:

“You really are a fun person to be around.”

“I have always looked up to you and your confidence.”
