I still remember kind words spoken to me years and years ago ... I hold on to them with all my might as I battle on towards recovery from the painful things in the past. Speak kindly ... You may impact a person more deeply than you realize.
i say it all the time. if you think something nice about someone, TELL THEM! it will make a massive difference to THEM! don't wait until their funeral to say how amazing they are. they needed to hear it when they were with us.
