it's a tie: just two months ago, a man at church, in his eighty's, shook my hand and said to me, "you're a good friend"; as a teen one of my Scout leaders wrote in one of my manuals, "In life, Dave, 'your best' will always be your trademark."
I'm blessed. Thanks for the 'Best Answer' selection.
That guys so tough he wouldn't tell you if his b@lls were froze off. (From when I used<br />
to ride a motorcycle all winter.)
It was a bit unpleasant at times, but I wouldn't admit it!
Your Awesome! said by the volunteer coordinator at the animal shelter I give some of my time.
Thank you! But I am not infallible, thus awesome in my mind is an accolade that is most difficult to live up to. Though civic duty is commendable, it is something most should do with out commendation, thus I feel I am just doing something I should do. That's far from awesome.. but I am so totally grateful for the recognition.
what diminishes the awesome, is that there is a self serving feeling that I have done something good there for I feel good.
I appreciate this! Honestly the reward in volunteering is in the gratification that you have done well. The fringe on that reward is to not desire accolades for it. I do it, because it is the right thing to do in this time of my life and that feels good on it's own. More people should try it, the world would be a better place.
mystic, deep... "you could be the coolest person at school if you tried" I guess that involves the word cool, though I think it to be false.
I kinda doubt I looked anything like cool. ^_^'
... O_o If I was cool, I would not use half my time avoiding people.
Perhaps, but I am not one of them. ^_^
Someone told me I was stunning. I told them to reach for their glasses.
