I think everyone should have a Whitney in their life.
Really, the girl is a blessing to have around.
Her mouth is a continual fountain of
praise and encouragement to me.
She makes a deliberate effort to notice me, hug me
and say something positive to me.
All the time!
I have to chuckle though.
Yesterday she told me how wonderful I looked.
She went on to say how I seemed to have blossomed
and gotten past the last 2 years of hurt and so on and so on.
It was humorous to me,
because minutes before I answered the door I had been crying.
(just 'cause I needed to)
... And my nose always turns red when I cry.
Also, I had only gotten maybe 4 hours of sleep that night.
I guess my body and mind had decided that
I only needed a nap instead of the usual night's rest.
(Being normal must be over rated.)
...And I had been cleaning,
...and I think I remembered to brush my hair that day.
I see you are getting the picture.
Anyway, the compliment/encouragement was duly noted
and much appreciated!
I am not sure how accurate her words were to me that day,
but I truly feel loved by this dear young woman.
"The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life."
What gift do you have? Have you been sharing yours?
