I find it interesting that we have a natural discernment of how much is enough for many aspects of our life. This includes the dinner table, although the Thanksgiving dinner table often pushes the limits to that natural discernment, it also includes our limits when grocery shopping or even exercising.
When was the last time you received a genuine compliment, affirmation, or encouragement? How did that make you feel? I bet it didn’t happen very often in the last year. I also bet it was the highlight of your day (likely the highlight of your week) and just thinking about it energizes you now. That is a significant impact for just a few spoken words or a short note. What a great gift!
