My morning was filled with meetings about Dylan. At 8:30, I had a conference with Dylan’s teacher at school. At 11:00, I had a phone conversation with Dylan’s occupational therapist. At 11:30, Mike and I had a meeting with Dylan’s child therapist (a.k.a. the Feelings Doctor). All three of them made me the happiest Mama in the universe.
They all told me, in one way or another, that Dylan has had a dramatic transformation. That he’s overcome his shyness. That he’s gaining confidence. That he’s a caring boy and a good friend. That he’s going to be just fine. That he’s happy.
I’m not telling you any of this to brag. I’m telling you this because sometimes it just feels good to be told something nice…about yourself, your kids or anything at all. I have a spring in my step today. A twinkle in my eye! (Wait, that might be a twitch.) All I’m saying is, nice goes a long way. If you’ve been meaning to say something nice to someone in your life, do it today. Do it now. You just might make them the happiest [fill in the blank] in the universe. Like me.
