Thursday, 24 January 2008 - A compliment

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a compliment.

I can live for two months on a good compliment. ~Mark Twain
Marge, you're as pretty as Princess Leia and as smart as Yoda. ~Homer Simpson

So, I just learned that today is National Compliment Day. I'm not sure where this designation came from. It's an unusual one, to be sure.

I admit that I struggle over compliments. My challenge is not giving them but accepting them graciously.

So, I practice this scenario over and over again: When someone compliments me for whatever reason, I simply say, "Thank you." It's not that hard.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
