And now for this week’s sentence to finish: “The nicest thing anyone ever did for me was…“
Next week’s sentence to finish: OFF FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!
The nicest thing anyone ever did for me was….
I have been blessed over the course of my 36 plus years (yes I will be 37 in a mere few weeks..Yay my birthday is on June 10th!), to have had more then a few nice things done for me (I am sure I have forgotten a few still).
Unfortunately, I have had some not so nice things done to me, too.
But, the good has outweighed the bad, plus I try my best to not dwell on the negative, because so not worth it to me.
Yet, as nice things do go, I would say the nicest (still hard to narrow it down) are the kind words and compliments I have gotten over the years.
Still after all these years, when someone does bestow a compliment on me, I can’t help blush a bit and even stammer over my words trying to find the right words to reply to words such as this.
Some Examples of Compliments in Recent Years Now:
- My Physical Appearance – I have always been petite and thin for my height, but still can’t always get the right words out when someone tells me that they approve of my physical appearance.
- Having a Handsome Husband – Trust me I am probably a bit prejudice and know he is all that and bag of chips. I still pinch myself sometimes to make he is real and u didn’t dream getting this lucky with him in the looks department and that he is smart, as well as has a wonderful sense of humor. And no, Kevin I am not fishing for anything with this compliment to you!
- Being a Mom to Two Adorable Little Girls – I never in a million years (even as much as they drive me crazy quite often) imagined I would get to be the mother to not just one, but two amazing little girls. And hear it quite often and still get a bit overwhelmed with how to respond to this.
- Being Educated, As Well As Running a Successful Business – I was always pretty much the top in most if not all my classes. Things pretty much came easy to me in the studying/school department. I took they for granted and getting and keeping a job. Never did I think when going to become a teacher that I would end up working form home blogging and even running, J9 Designs and it truly being this rewarding daily for me. When I do get compliments on my skills and talents, I also still can’t believe how far I have come on levels with this in life. I also, never imagined being a published author in a successful anthology, but still somehow I am and amazed but this so much, too.
In the end, I know I did work hard for much of what I got. I am proud of it, but I truly still don’t want to come off as though I am greedy about it nor do I want to seem conceded one but either. So, I truly hope this article didn’t come off in the light, because most of what I wrote and shared here is mostly my own deep thoughts that I have pondered and still feel with all the hard work, I guess I just had some luck, too somewhere to get here to where I am now.
Now that I shared about the nicest thing ever done to me, please share with us today yours.
