Give someone a compliment today.  You never know what it may mean to them.

From a friendly smile and “Hello” on the sidewalk to say “I like your dress”, or a nod in the coffee shop to say “Your hair is beautiful.”

While these are friendly gestures of acknowledgement, the best compliments are deeper, a little more meaning.  My mother came to my husband’s grandma’s visitation service.  My mom introduced herself to his Grandfather as my mother, and he smiled at her and said “She is one of the best parts of our family.”

That’s high praise.

And it meant the world to me.
