Nice Matters


I was thinking a little more about Deanna's cute little package that I got in the mail this week, and how it made me feel. Deanna didn't know this, but I've been feeling kinda weary lately -- (thanks mainly to a sick bug visiting the three of us this week; and also a little soul-weary because of other things, like some ongoing job and money worries) and her gift contained just the message I needed to hear. Right now.

I just LOVE people who act on little thoughts or promptings about somebody. I love people who do nice things. Little things done or even just said, that end up meaning so much to the recipient. You never know what people are going through.  I'm probably not the only one feeling a little soul-weary out there -- we could all use a little kindness.

Nice matters. More than ever. (Thanks again, Deanna.)

Just some thoughts.

So fun to get things in the mail! And Deanna is so blasted talented. I'm glad it gave you a pick-me-up!

It's just a rusty metal tag I found at Robert's Crafts...I wanted to do a magnetic board, too, but you know...This was more in my price range. :) Glad you like it!

So glad that Deanna made your day. You are so right, you just never know what little things we say or do may impact others. Some people are a little more in tune to this and service oriented but we should all be a bit more aware of others and their needs, especially with the way the world is today.

There's nothing quite like good friends to help you through a rough patch. Hope you're feeling better and spunky again soon. :)
