Guess I’m not so Mediocre!

I just received this email from one of my Aunts in Canada.  I don’t know why, but I wanted to share it with  you as it meant a lot to me……

‘I’ve been meaning to tell you that I think you and D have done something marvellous.  You appear to be in the process of raising a little girl that is a kind gentle soul.  To see her so brave and gentle with dogs she has never met is a true wonder.  And to be so willing to be a friend of everyone she meets is a lovely sight.  Even though I’m sure she was a tired little soul on many occasions, I never saw her throw a tantrum or act like a spoiled brat.  (I’m sure she can be a holy terror at times as all young ladies can be.)  She was a sheer delight whenever I was lucky enough to spend time with her.  Keep up the good work.’

Wow!  I’m humbled…..

  1. Oh how lovely! Well done you and a super huge well done to your aunt for taking the time to write you that lovely note. We all think complimentary thoughts but how many of us bother to write and share them? Might think about whose life I can enhance with a little note of praise now xx

  2. I'm thinking the same thing…we all second guess ourselves and a bit of praise and affirmation would go a long way….Now who should I send one too?

  3. What a wonderful e-mail to reveive. How Aunt must be a lot like you, as so many people are quick to step up and tell you all the things you are doing wrong, how nice to hear about the good things. Amazing, just you remembe those words. Wonderful indeed
