You are amazing!
I received an email from a dear friend which contained only these three words and it had the power to transform my day. Something that took less than a second of time for the sender picked me up and carried me throughout the day ...well...ok...week!
It gave me pause to reflect on this amazing power of affirmation. I admit I don't routinely send out affirming messages. Rest assured I am thinking them! But I am guilty of not taking the time to let you know on a regular basis just how lucky I am that our paths have crossed.
We all want to be seen..to be recognized. When I think of the people that have mentored me in my life, I see that they saw something in me that I did not see in myself. I am so glad that they were looking! That Is a renewed goal for me-to be looking.
I am reminded of a gift that we received when the kids were young; The Red Plate.
On it the words are emblazoned You are Special Today. So whenever anyone in the family deserved special recognition like being a good helper, getting good grades, winning a race,
they were honored with the Red Plate. It was a great tradition and cost nothing you just had to be looking!
Well I think we all need more Red Plate days in our lives!
So I am sending you the Red Plate today! You are special and I recognize it and appreciate it!
It's a Red Plate Day
