It only takes a few words to make someone’s day.

Maybe sometimes we need to receive a gift before we know how to give one?

On my way to a meeting, with lots on my mind, I bumped into one of my neighbours.

In exchanging a few quick words, she gave me a boost.

A boost which kept me smiling for much much longer than it took her to say them.

It’s easy to forget how much of a difference you can make to someone’s day with a few carefully chosen words.

And sometimes you need to experience getting the benefit before you remember to spread a little happiness yourself.

I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating one of my favourite little quotes: ‘Happiness is like jam. You can’t spread it without getting some on yourself.’

Spread a little today.

  1. It only took my husband to say I looked lovely, yesterday, to have me beaming all day!
    Probably because he doesn’t say it very often!
