A kind word

I got the most kind message from a girl I have known for years. She has lost over 100 pounds in the last year and looks amazing. She is an incredible inspiration and watching her transformation has been awesome!

This is what she said to me:
"You are not only an inspiration to me but also such an uplifting encourager whenever I need it! Thanks for who you are in my life and all the others that you bless!"

I was blown away! I told her I didn't know what I did to deserve such kind words and she told me that in her prayer time, God told her I needed encouragement and for her to tell me how she felt. Wow, huh?

And then I got a text from my hubby that said he just wanted me to know how much he loved me and how special I am to all of them. Wow times 2!

So my point of this post is not to toot my own horn, but to show you that a kind word can go a long way! Too much when we think nice things about our loved ones, we don't tell them. But let me tell you-you should! Just by saying something kind, you can completely change a person's day. Because it did mine:).

On another note, if you haven't seen "The Help" yet, I highly recommend seeing it! I read the book, (which I think you should do first, but if you aren't a reader I and it was amazing. I am really happy with the way the movie turned out. It has such an incredible message and teaches about being kind and fair. It really is an amazing book and movie.

Have a great end of the week and say something kind to someone:).
