being told you are appreciated is the simplest and most uplifting

Watch carefully the reaction when you express thanks and appreciation to someone for an effort that they have quietly made.  So many feel that what we do is not seen, nor appreciated, and taken for granted.  Yet, observing, acknowledging, and complimenting literally uplifts a person’s spirit, well being and how one carries him or herself.

To be able to achieve such a positive influence for another, however brief, is a miracle we are capable of creating.

calla lilies purple

 

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”
― Luther Burbank

Three years ago, on Mother’s Day, I was gifted four calla lily plants by my children.  As this is my favorite flower ~ in all of its variations ~ the plants were multicolored.  Removed from their plastic pots, they were replanted near the front door, but I didn’t know if they would come up again or if the deer would eat them all.  They had eaten my tulips, bulbs and all!!

They grew again!! Their growing rates were staggered and I enjoyed some temporary beautiful lush blooms.  It does help to see new growth before our eyes instead of only within.

I wrote this post last year, but feel even stronger about our need to support our local and national charities.  Our world has seen destruction and upheaval and none are more affected than neighbors and citizens just like ourselves.

In the United States, more than 10,000 people died last year waiting for disability status to get help for the most desperate of situations.

Not everyone can do a big thing, but everyone can do some thing.
