"You are awesome!"

You are awesome. Three little words that no one could ever get tired of hearing I'm sure, but by the same token are not used enough.

My story begins with a back story (as my stories usually do) since we are close to closing our first home, I needed some stuff printed out from our bank account and I had to actually go down to the bank. The reason I had to physically make the trek is because my wonderful husband refuses to do online banking, he doesn't trust it and will not hear anything to the contrary. So away to the bank I went with both of my crazy boys.

At the bank, I waited a while and my little guy was asleep but promptly woke up thirty seconds before I was called to be attended to (seriously his timing is impeccable!). So needless to say my boys were running around the WHOLE time we were there, playing pirates, avengers and just shooting in general. We had been playing 20 questions as she "updated my profile" and about halfway through my time there the lady helping me said "you are awesome." I was kind of taken aback I just kind of sheepishly smiled to the side, I have never been one that is good at getting compliments to begin with but in that moment I have to say that I felt a little creeped out. She looked at me again and said "I'm serious you are awesome, you know that right?" And she looked at me with a sort of surprised expression as if she was genuinely expecting me to say thanks and toot my own horn. I said "thank you" and I realized how amazing it felt to have someone genuinely think that about me after meeting me for a half an hour and with my kids running a muck in the bank pretty much that entire time.

So thank you bank lady, you really made my day and made me realize that I am amazing and it is ok to think that and it doesn't make me a cocky jerk. I think every now and then we all need a little bit of reminding of how amazing we are....

I googled contentment and this was the first image that I loved, found here.
