Why does it mean so much when someone tells us we did something well? Wait... let me correct that, why does it mean so much when the right someone tells us we do something well?

I give compliments pretty easily - much better than I take them in fact. However, the right compliment, on the right thing, from the right person can make my day. I got the ultimate compliment last night.

My daughter, A, is the cutest little girl you'll ever see (and no, I'm not at all biased).

Look at that little angel! In her amazing life span (of nearly 5 years) she has had many lofty goals of what she wanted to be when she grew up: a whale, a dolphin, a zebra and most recently an otter. She has never followed the mainstream, that girl. However, last night, for the first time, she told me she wanted to be something a person can actually be when she grows up. A momma!

Yep, I've gotta be doing something right!

Oh yes, recognition from just the right person can certainly make one's day!
