    Compliment

    Sometime last week, this guy told someone I am pretty.  When I was told, I felt my face warming up and becoming red.  It felt nice receiving such a positive comment for a change but I believe this guy needs glasses, lol ;)  I once was beautiful inside & outside and now I...

    It Was Nice:)

    Around 8 in the morning, I was waiting for the bus to take me to work and feeling like crap (just because). Traffic was slow, and then some guy yells out his car window, "You have really nice eyes". Totally caught me off guard :)

    I Like Complimenting Others And Some Days It Comes Back

    One day last week a girl in the elevator with me was wearing some great shoes, so I said, "Hey, those are great shoes."  The next day she said hi in the coffee line-up and we started talking. So I told someone else I liked her necklace and she told me her daughter...

    This Made My Day :)

    I was walking in a baby store with Addy in my arms, and was looking at cribs. A clerk about, forty or fifty came up and asked if I needed any help. Him: Hello, there. Can I help you? Me: Hi, well I'm trying to find a cheap crib, I have a tight buget. Him: (gets teary eyed) Come...
