Did you ever have one of those days when it seems like "all fetch and no pats on the head?" Your to-do list stretches forever. Your oh-boy-can't- wait list is very short.
On a recent day like that, I noticed all I really wanted, more than anything, was a big pat on the head. Simple acknowledgement holds magical powers to lift spirits, remove boulders from shoulders and inspire creativity. Encouragement moves mountains.
Here's some for you:
Atta girl! Atta boy!
You are so wonderful.
You do so much for all of us.
Even when you hit a long stretch of no pats on the head, you keep going.
Your kindness means so much.
You have no idea the difference your generosity makes.
You've been through a lot. It must have taken courage.
Woo Hoo for you!
You mean the world to me.
Please pass it on. Someone may need a pat today.
