5 Minutes Of Good Compliments

While I was working yesterday, Mai got busy being her creative self and set up a stand to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (...and also a bit of a profit for herself).

I took her up on the 5 minutes of good compliments and I have to tell you it was the best $1 I ever spent. She was GOOOOOD at it...and I walked away feeling amazing about myself.

What's the best compliment you've ever received? The one that had you walking on air for a for a while...

The best compliment I have ever received. Hmmmm. Probably someone comparing me to my mom. My mom is super awesome.

WOW! I would pay a buck for 5 whole minutes of compliments! Best compliment was from my dad a few years ago. He just said "wow" after I did something difficult. It was Perfect!

THAT is so stinking cute. I love that she has a fundraising and entrepreneurial side already :):) best compliment….its hard to rank them but i would say any from the current BF, any from my parents, and my friends on my current success.

That's so cute and funny too that she even came up with the compliment idea! What a sweet girl!

I like when people tell me I'm smart. That makes me feel great.

She rocks! And I love that she hands out compliments--we all need that shot in the arm sometimes.

today my nephew told me I looked small in my bathing suit. Yes!

Mai is a crack-up!! Love that idea! I might pay 2$ :)

Earned compliments are the best- like when you manage to do something that took you forever to figure out !
Your daughter is learning from YOU! I bet you are a good complimenter :) and maybe a good entrepreneur.

Adorable. :)

I don't know about the best compliment I've ever received, but a friend told me yesterday that I'm really improving on the mountain bike. That felt great to hear. And then I fell. lol

I love the idea of selling compliments. I hope some other people took her up on it. We could all use a lot of compliments.

Jen said...

You are raising some pretty darn cute and smart kids. You are a lucky momma!
Someone wrote me the sweetest letter a while ago that included one of the best compliments. I will admit that I read it about 3 times and it makes me smile just thinking about it.

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel said...

"And a little bit of profit for herself." Ha! You've got an entrepreneurial daughter there!

How many compliments did she end up selling?
