#thisdaysjoy: an unexpected compliment
November 13, 2023
It doesn’t matter where you go to school — public school, private school, or homeschooled! — there are always some “older kids” who make an impression.
I remember a couple of those girls! Cheerleaders both of them, and they were seniors when I started junior high.
There they are at the ripe old age of seventeen or eighteen 17 or 18 seeming so impossibly cool and pulled together while I’m still struggling through glasses, braces, acne, and all the weirdness of puberty.
So imagine my surprise when completely out of the blue, I got the NICEST note and compliment from one of them!
She’d picked up a copy of my book and wrote to let me know how much she enjoyed it. She’d shared it with some people at the school where she works.
She was proud of me?!?
I seriously walked around with a goofy smile on my face all day long.
Want to be the change you want to see in the world?
Give the compliment!
