What a surprise today, one of the sweetest ladies that walks by my office every day stopped in to say thank you. She just wanted to let me know that she watches and pays attention to what people are doing around here and I’ve really impressed her with the success of my projects in the one year that I’ve been here.
My mouth was hanging open, really, it was literally open as she spoke. Her words were unexpected and caught me off guard. I did regain my composure so my mouth wasn’t hanging open the whole time… ha, ha.
She’s an older lady, very smart and kind. I speak with her almost everyday. She always has a kind word for everyone, but she doesn’t hesitate to tell it like it is either. I truly enjoy talking with her.
Her kind words were something that I needed to hear. We all need to be told thank you and that we’re appreciated. There are two things I’ve always believed. God will put the right people in my life at the right time, and for the right reasons, and He will never give me more than I can handle.
It’s so easy to fall into the daily grind that we lose focus on how others perceive us. I’m thankful that my friend took time today to share her kind words with me.
James 1:17: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
