A old friend called out of the blue today .
After we covered the usual "How are you and the kids" chit chat I asked if there was a particular reason for the call .
"Yes!", she stated , I just called to say "Your Awesome!" ... , Well after a few initial moments in which I stammered and stuttered I finally was able to choke out a "Thank you" amidst a bit of nervous laughter . " You have been on my mind, dear and so I just wanted to give you a call and let you know someone thinks your awesome.. gotta run ... talk to you later "
Well,... I just stood there holding the phone for a good three minutes giving it that head tilt baffled look with a slight smile on my face, before finally putting the phone back in it's cradle.
I started to laugh as I walked away and then noticed a warm feeling . A smile came to my lips and before I knew it I was humming a little tune to myself .
By the end of the day I was glowing . Coming home from school My teenage son upon seeing mom all smiles gave me little weird look and asked .. "What's with you Mom" ... in typical teenage fashion.
With out missing a beat I beamed at him and replied ..." I think your awesome!".
I got the same puzzled look I'm sure I gave the phone a few hours before but as he turned to go to his room I saw the beginnings of a little smile .
It is amazing how an unexpected compliment can bring back the sparkle in life and how sad it is that we don't find more occasions for it
So to all my freinds out there in Cyber land I want you to know today ...
I think your awesome...!!
And ask ... that if this story brought a smile to your face or touched you in anyway.
Please pay it forward ...
Tell someone in your life today
How awesome you think they are!
