I had a very nice evening yesterday. Someone thought long and hard and remembered something that I enjoy very much and then planned an evening centered around what *I* like. That was very nice of them and I thank them.
I’m so used to being the organizer, the one that makes the choices and keeps everything going, the mom, the wife, the secretary blah blah blah…. and I’m much more comfortable and used to being on the giving end of things then the receiving. But every now and then someone will say something nice, or compliment me on something I’ve done and I tend to simply brush it aside as if it doesn’t really mean anything to me. That is far from the truth. Forgive my silliness and inability to accept these things graciously. I’m working on it! 🙂
I’m a very lucky gal to have so many supportive and loving people in my life. My husband, my children and my friends. I never quite understand why they are all there for *me*, but I need to stop once in a while and just absorb that they are and enjoy it. Whatever their reasons, I’m just so glad they are there.
So, a public thank you to everyone who has ever said a nice thing to me and then thought I didn’t hear them or accept the compliment. And a public thank you to everyone who has done something wonderful for me (anything done for me is wonderful…how nice to be thought of!!). It means everything to me.
