Kind words go a long way

A smile can be contagious and can lift your spirits.
A hug can make you feel better from head to toe.

Both can do wonders, but both are temporary. Words linger ... words make you think ... words can do more than you realize.

The other day, completely out of the blue, I got a message on Facebook from an old friend. The kindest words I have heard read in a long time.

"You're a rad mom!"

My reply, "Thanks, what did I do?"

"Just doing your thing, being a proud momma! Love it! It's the most endearing and attractive quality in a woman. And I love that you are setting a great example and installing faith in your child's life. You're doing all right and you should be reminded of that."

The lesson here - kind words are always appreciated. We may be thinking them, but how often do we actually say them?
