Summer! Oh, summer is finally here! It's been a good school year, but after 28 of them, you could say I'm kind of tired. Kind of. Haha!
How 'bout them Astros? We haven't followed MLB in a few years because, frankly, our home team wasn't that great. But this year? They are off to a fabulous start! Their record is 42-16, and they've won the last 11 in a row. It's good to have a winning team in town again.
And isn't this clever? Or maybe it's just bizarre... Some 20-something guys in Spokane (who don't live with their fathers) have placed a Craigslist ad looking for a generic dad to come over and grill hamburgers and talk about guy stuff on Father's Day. Creative, or creepy?
And now, time for Coffee Chat.
What is the best compliment you've received lately?
Wow. We, meaning all people, are often not good at accepting compliments. Maybe there are some people who don't feel worthy of a compliment. Perhaps they don't trust the source of the compliment. How a person reacts to a compliment is often a reflection of their self-esteem. Compliments make people uncomfortable, at least, sometimes.
I don't remember learning how to accept a compliment when I was a child. Perhaps I didn't get many. As an adult, I learned that I should just receive and acknowledge the praise by saying, "Thank you." It's easier said than done, though. The tendency is to say something like, "Oh, it's not that great," or "It was nothing." Tonight, for example, our daughter told me she thinks the wreaths I made for the wedding are beautiful. I believe I said, "I'm glad you like them." Do you think that was an appropriate response?
That's all for now!
