Someone did that for me when I was about thirteen, and feeling very in secure. We called her Mama Kay, and she shared her thoughts about the kind of person I would grow up to be. Those words made me feel better about myself. I believe I have lived up to her assessment of me.
I try to do the same for others, especially when I notice an individual is insecure or has low self-esteem. I pray I have made a difference for the better in their lives.
Have you reached out to someone in some way that has made difference, even though you may never personally observe it. Try it if you haven’t in the past. It is such a small gift to give someone, but can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Be that kind soul who makes someone feel they are somebody.
Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
