21 Days of Compliments – Day 9
Day 9. Today is Day 9. Okay, that didn’t help to stir up any ideas. Let me try again.
Today is Day 9 of the 21 Days of Compliments challenge. I think that this is the latest I have posted my compliment of the day since I foisted this ridiculous challenge upon myself. It’s taken me a while but I finally came up with my compliment. I thought of it about ten minutes ago when I was desperately wanting to lie down and take a nap (the Gilligan’s Island three hour tour kind as my husband refers to my naps.) I very much wanted a nap due to my early morning.
On a normal day in the life of “me,” I have trouble finding a reason to rise from bed unless the sun is up. Today, I got up before daybreak and threw on some mix-matched clothes (well, partially threw on some clothes. I went to bed half dressed so I was ahead of the game) and headed out the door to pick up my two favorite little munchkins. We then came back home to settle in for a breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and milk before heading out again to go to school.
I deviate from my cherished sleep routine because of my dedication to them. And, that brings me to my compliment of the day, dedication to family and friends. I gravitate towards being a night owl so mornings can be pretty tough on me. Only my dedication could possibly roust me out of bed when it is still dark and have me on the road under foggy conditions.
Today, on Day 9, I am giving myself the compliment of dedication to my family and friends.
1. I am a talented organizer.
2. I am a good baker.
3. I am good at commitment.
4. I am a compassionate person.
5. I am an affectionate person.
6. I have a good sense of humor.
7. I am tenacious.
8. I am loyal.
9. I am dedicated to my family and friends.
