Compliments and Kudos

Compliments and Kudos, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
Over the Christmas holiday, my buddy Willie grew a mustache. He has shaved it since then, but this picture really cracks me up!!! He knew it would eventually make an appearance on my blog, so here it is now. He doesn't always look like Ben Stiller's Character from Dodgeball. Willie just accepted a deaconate at his church. (Losing the mustache probably helped ;) Congratulations my friend.

Interestingly, I received a compliment from a friend of mine yesterday. He left me an Instant Message while I was out watching a movie. Check it out.

"i got to thinking the other day my friend and while i have yet to adopt your faith i wanted to tell you i have the utmost respect for you due to it your about the only person who i've met that dosen't force it on people and keeps an open mind about it and just generally seems to want to share something that they consider a gift. i wish there were more of you out there my man because in my book your one of the best people out there i've met"

Pretty cool compliment, I think. I debated putting this comment my friend shared up here. I wouldn't want people to think I was tooting my own horn. I've posted this comment because it was a great encouragement for my day. Little notes like this go a long way when we are having tough times. Even when everything is going well, they are like a balm for our spirits.

If you have an opportunity, and somebody has encouraged you, or been an example to you--take a minute and write them a little note. Little encouragements go a long way!

So Willie does exist! Or at least someone out there is trying to make it seem so...
