Say It, Tell, Spit It Out!

Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive". And He's right.

Sometime back, someone (shucks, I can't even remember who) awarded me a "Sisterhood Award" or something, but I didn't know what to do with it other than thanking the person! Then 2 days' back, Rae gave me the "Kreative Award". Oh, I'm getting the hang of it now, I'm supposed to sort of 'hang' up the award on my blog in appreciation for the honour bestowed. Oic (knocking my forehead).

Then, I thought, I've better start giving out awards of my own to all those online friends who have been so supportive of me all this while. And I did, in the post below.

Now, here's the interesting part; seeing what huge encouragement my simple little virtual award can do for those who've received it! Take a look at the reactions from Rachel, Neen, Judy and Miles! And I feel so good when they feel so good! :)

Their excitement in getting the award tells me that I've done something right. This reminds me that it is important to EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION to people, especially to those whom we care for! What is love if it is hidden in the heart? What can such kind of love do? It has no impact.

If a simple virtual thingy like this can spice up someone's life and give him/her renewed hope, encouragement and affirmation, think of what your genuine spoken words of love can do for your loved ones?

So say it, tell, spit it out today, don't delay, "I really appreciate you for ..." and see what you'll receive in return! :)

It's amazing how just offering words of encouragement or appreciation can change one's outlook. The right words can be a priceless gift. You are doing things right and I appreciate your blog.

You are so right ... words of encouragement can be so powerful. Thank you for making this point. We can be such a negative society, and it is so important to remember why we are really here.
Great post!

I agree with you. I think we need to act nice all the time, even to people who aren't so nice to us, or to people we don't really like. It's hard, but at the end of the day, it's worth it. Making other people happy surely will make us happy too.
