It is fantastic to look at a friend and tell her something fantastic about herself.

I am a big believer in compliments. I throw them around to my family and friends like I spread soft butter on warm bread. In other words, I give out a lot of compliments. My compliments are not fake and they are not without merit. I give out lots of compliments because I am a believer in giving people roses while they can smell them rather than at their funerals. Compliments are treasures. I see them as precious and priceless gifts and it thrills me to give them away.

I have never met a person who did not like to receive a true and heartfelt compliment. It does something good for us to have another person recognize the good and wonderful qualities we possess. So today I say, let’s pick a friend and say, “I am so glad to have a friend like you because . . .”

This song, “A God Like You” by Kirk Franklin gives the idea I am trying to get across.

We need to celebrate friendship and how fantastic our friends are. Not only should we celebrate, we need to let our friends know how fantastic we think they are. If you are on twitter, be sure to follow me. I am @janeanedavis. One of my favorite features on Twitter is the phenomenon of  #FF. By using the #FF and then adding twitter names from various people, you are telling the world that the people you list are good in your eyes.  You are saying these are people who you should follow because they are interesting, worth paying some attention and are people you should follow on Twitter.
