In this season of gift purchasing, giving and receiving, I received a very special gift yesterday. I had to spend the day down in the medical center in Houston. For those of you who know this area, although we are blessed to have it here, it is busy and stressful to say the least. The craziness of the traffic, maneuvering through the area, finding the right building, finding a parking space and getting to the correct office is daunting.
I haven't even mentioned the stress of having medical tests or dealing with the anxiety of having to be down at the medical center. It is my yearly trek down there for my annual scans and tests. Because of my history of the lung tumor and spinal cord tumor, they keep a close watch on me which is a good thing.
As I was finally leaving yesterday I found myself completely exhausted and hungry. I left my house a 7:30 a.m. to arrive at a 9:00 appointment. Got there by the skin of my teeth and was there until almost 2 p.m. I was hungry and tired.
The first place I saw that had a healthy choice for food was a favorite of mine, Whole Foods. I whipped in there and grabbed some goodies and as I walked up to the checker, this bright and sunny young lady says the kindest thing to me. She said, "Hello, you really look cute today! How are you?"
Don't get me wrong, I don't thrive on getting compliments. However, this unexpected sweet comment literally pulled me out of the dumps immediately. She had this lovely smile and sparkling eyes and I knew that she was a genuinely nice person. She had ultimately given me a wonderful gift.
The gift of a kind word is so important. You never know what people are going through and you never know how a kind word can encourage them. I will never forget that young lady.
Take a minute today to pass along a well-intended gift of a kind word!
"Have you fully lived today?"
