Give an honest compliment to a woman.
This morning, while at the theater for a family matinee, the girls and I ran into a friend we don't see often enough. Though she has more children than I do and a busy calendar, she always manages to look fantastic. Before we went our separate ways (we in search of adjacent seats, she headed to the lobby) I told her as much.
Funny...I didn't think of it as a charitable deed until later when she found us in the theater and told me that compliment was definitely today's good deed. (Our local paper ran a story over the weekend about A Year of Living Charitably. Word is getting around!)
Absolutely. I think too many people are so afraid that simple compliments will send some "wrong message" that they simply keep to themselves. What a shame! A compliment can be simply that; and I find that most of the time people appreciate being noticed.
