Compliments cost nothing, yet many pay dear for them.

Thomas Fuller

A compliment has great possibilty.  It shows respect, admiration, approval, gratitude.  trust, appreciation and hope.  One of the most generous things you can do in life is to give someone a true and meaningful compliment.  A compliment is a positive and powerful encouragement.  Kind words infuse confidence in a child and inspiration in adults.  It can bring joy, strength and courage to human souls.  

By giving a compliment you can literally make someone’s day, sometimes even their week, or month or year. When you give someone a compliment, you’ll more than likely get one back.The best thing is compliments are free and don’t cost anything, but  a moment of your time. and they make a huge difference.

A sincere compliment can lift us up and we stand a little straighter. It’s important to give them to those people closest to us, sometimes we take them for granted and we never should do that. I think one of the best compliments I ever got was someone telling me how great they thought one of my sons was.  That meant a lot to me, I must have done something right to raise such a good son..  

So be generous in your compliments you never know how much it might mean to others and make your day a little brighter too. It’s a great way to spread happiness!

A compliment is verbal sunshine.

This is so true. Like you, my very favorite compliments have been when someone compliments me about my children. Nothing makes me feel better than that!

You are right about the compliments. It definitely works both ways. I do try to give sincere compliments. I enjoy the smiles of a harried clerk especially in this CRAZY COVID time.
The best to you and we ALWAYS enjoy the visit to your house.
Love your way with hugs,
Sherry & jack

I can still remember a couple spontaneous compliments from years ago, and the way it made me feel. Surely I can do the same for another. It just needs to be sincere.
