Smile File

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

I’ve been doing it forever…..saving little things people give me. I learned a long time ago that there would be days when I needed reminding of something positive or wonderful about myself. Life has a way of tearing you down at times and when it does……it’s pretty cool to pull out a sweet card from a friend or co-worker that says something encouraging!

Which reminds me…..WHO am I encouraging? Is there someone out there that needs a word from me? Or a card? Maybe even a phone call or text that says, “Hey, you were on my mind and I said a little prayer for you!”? I know what that means to me, so imagine what it does for a friend or loved one!

What do you do with the little trinkets people give you? Some people save things in a file system. I have an old shoe box (Brag Box) that I decorated with cute paper for my treasures. Maybe it sounds silly, but I can’t help it! I’m a softie! I will probably save these things forever. So if you’re a friend or family member that has given me such a thing….I’ve got it! And I do go back and read them! Thank you!
