It’s National Gorgeous Grandma Day today, and I dare you to call up your grandma and tell her she’s gorgeous. Are you brave enough? Or maybe a little crazy enough?
It’s not really a comfortable thing to tell people they are gorgeous, or brilliant, but it’s an easy way to make them feel great. How do you feel when your parents tell you you’re amazing? Have you ever said that to them? How do you think they would feel if you told them they are an amazing mom/dad? There’s a cool video with the actor Keanu Reeves (the voice of Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4) telling an audience that they are breathtaking–how easy is it to make someone else feel good?
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
John 15:11-12 (NIV)
Get a little creative today and think of something awesome to tell someone–something you mean that will make the other person’s day great.
Dear Lord, Thank you for the amazing people in my life. Help me to show my love and appreciation for them today. Forgive me for when I take them for granted. Amen.
