Congrats On Your Face

I'm home sick with a nasty stomach bug for the second day now. All I've been able to keep down is Cheerios and bread (not toast, just plain old bread). Ella is getting her snooze on and I'm waiting for someone to help me unlock the next level of Pet Rescue Saga. That my friends is an open invitation to do a little pinning and blogging. I can't even remember the last time I had a chance to sit down and immerse myself in Pinterest for an extended period of time AND update the blog! This definitely doesn't mean I'm happy about being sick...I'm just trying to look on the brights side. 

Speaking of positivity...it's National Compliment Day, who knew? Well I knew. I'd like to extend the following compliment to my local news - you rock, thanks for always keeping me so informed! My first two years as a Guidance Counselor (the glory days), I brought Kindness Week to the school! One whole day during that week was dedicated to writing compliments for one another. I took on the task of delivering them all (after screening them for appropriateness...it is middle school after all). It was SO. MUCH. FUN! I would love to revive Kindness Week. It's on the to-do list fo' sho'!

A day of compliments is great however I believe in compliments year round! What better way to brighten someones day? Honestly it is something I do often. Some may think of me as an "over-complimenter". It happens to be my "go to" method of breaking an awkward silence. This might be my new favorite, if you get this one from me you know I really care:

Here is another good one from my favorite movie Bridesmaids:

Like most people, I'm guilty of not being able to accept a compliment. Sometimes you should just say "thank you" and go with it. Is it too late for a resolution? This is SO me...guilty!

So I've officially (finally) decided, my resolution is to work on accepting compliments and also to give out more. Would that make me an "over-over-complimenter"? I've already started. I'm surprised neither of them asked me what I wanted...
Okay this has been fun but my little lady is waking up. Taking care of a baby while being sick is not easy! Luckily, Hubs is on his way home.
*Stephen, you are such an incredible husband and father - I couldn't do any of this without you! Oh, and congrats on your face you handsome man! Consider yourself complimented! 

Happy National Compliment Day Friends...now go make someone smile!

  2. I hope you feel better soon! I've been stuck with a cold since November, but poor Travis has had RSV, 3 ear infections, AND pneumonia in the last two months alone! I'm ready for winter to be over. I love the idea of sending compliments around the school! You should definitely revive it! :)

  3. Appropriately accepting compliments is a skill that takes practice. It's so hard to just say thank you and not feel the need to explain or reciprocate. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it!
