My stepdaughter told me I was a great mom ... It meant the world to me.
My older brother said you're so grown up now! *Yeah right!* I'm only 16.
The best compliment I ever received was from the owners of a multi million dollar log home that I built for them. It's been 15 years since and I still get phone calls and holiday cards from them.
"You can visit me anytime! Daddy doesn't need to come."
I realize that is a statement, but th implied compliment is my step-daughter enjoys spending time with me. We had a rough start, mainly from a misunderstanding. Once that was cleared up we have become great friends and enjoy spending time together.
"that 500 pound tortoise weights more than you". that was good to know :)
When a person told me I was really gifted at piano!
This really nice and well-liked girl at school once said that I was "way cuter" than this really popular guy. That was awesome lol. I couldn't stop smiling about it for the rest of the day. :D
One of the best was when my mother said that despite everything she and my dad put me through, I grew up well and was a better parent and person than she could ever hope to be.
That I was wise.
The best compliment I've received was at my son's high school graduation. This compliment came from my ex-husband who told me that I did a wonderful job raising our son.
Despite all our differences and despite the tragedy surrounding our marriage (death of a son), after all was said and done, the remaining son came out a wonderful young man. But for him to acknowledge that it was mostly me, it made me feel good.
Thankfully i;ve got very good compliments over the years and so many of them were so pleasing and surely an honor to receive them.
Years ago my soccer coach started to call me "Ricky" cause he really believed i have a unique way of playing and it's a close to Ricardo Kaka somehow as well and since he's my idol and he knew it. It meant a world to me! I don't like to be compared but being compared to my idol is something else!
And well during high school, everyone wanted me for soccer, it was a very pleasant feeling, i remember for a competition and a cup run college guys wanted me to play for their team and i was just middle of the high school in compare of them i was much younger and kind of shorter. But that didn't stopped me, at first nobody took me serious (other teams) but after two game, everytime we walked on the field, i could hear they secretly talking about me and marking me.
So many friends complimented about my eyes and one day one of my friends told me that she wishes that she could have my eyes! I was blushing to death!!! Haha!
So much more! I smile wide and get energized when i think about all these compliments that i received over my life! It makes me feel existed specially about my passions and activities that i do!
What's up squid? (This was said by my friend Joshua. Said I looked like a squid). That didn't make my mood any happier. So I sent him off to the Locker.
"You're yanking my chain!" My other friend Alexander, who didn't believe that I was the Lord of the Locker.
"No, I'm not yanking your chain," I replied. (Seriously Alexander? The Lord of the 7 Seas, the Lord of the Locker does *NOT* have a friend named Alexander or Joshua).
