"Nice" MATTERS!!


Sometimes people just surprise you with something sweet and out of the ordinary, ya know?  Of course, I'm not surprised at all, that something so sweet and out of the ordinary would come from my friend Greg, who has seen me go through some serious ups and downs in the last couple years and has always been there with a kind word and an open ear, encouraging me and helping me see that I am worth much more than I ever give myself credit for.

I think the word "nice" is underrated...  In our third grade classroom, we encourage the students not to use it in their writing.  Now, don't get me wrong ~ I'm all about "juicy" words, as I like to refer to them as...  But really, what's wrong with something ~ or someONE ~ being "just" NICE?

Nothing at all.  I like being nice, really...  And it warms my heart when someone is NICE to ME! 

So THANK YOU, my friend Greg, for being so nice yourself, and for honoring me with an award that truly means something important.

Now, I will be passing this along to four others who I feel are deserving of such an award.... Hard decision, because I am blessed to know so many nice people!!  Stay tuned!

Congratulations on receiving your award.  It certainly is a 'nice' feeling to be appreciated.  Isn't it?  I got one too and had the pleasure of passing them on to some lovely journalist.
Hugs to you.

Seriously, they don't get a whole lot nicer than you, chelle.   That's just one of the reasons I love you so much.
