Have you ever noticed how much we search and yearn for compliments from others but yet, we rarely seem to give them? Think about it. When we change our hair or get a new outfit, we'd like someone to notice and say something to acknowledge it. But do we do the same for others? Or not even only when they have a noticeable change...

  • When was the last time you told a co-worker how nice they looked? 
  • Or the last time you told a fellow employee or a friend good job on something? 
  • How about your mom, dad, grandparents, siblings... When was the last time you told your mom how beautiful she is or how that outfit makes her eyes pop? Or let any family member know how much they mean to you and how you wouldn't have been able to get through this, or finished that without their assistance? 
  • Or told someone how much you appreciate their hard work? 
  • Maybe a spouse/dating partner how hard they work to make sure you're happy?
Sometimes we all need a little pick-me-up. You may never know how much your words are needed when you say them to someone, or how much they will mean to that person. It could brighten up their whole day, and stay with them for a long time.

So... Be a blessing to someone today. Instead of searching for or expecting compliments and acknowledgement, give it!
