Tidbit Tuesday (sunshine & compliments)

Today was the first day in a long time that I didn't just lay the day away. It's been most challenging lately to just get out of my PJ's. I wrote a post last week about being cold and can you believe it's been anything but cold these last few days. I like to think it's God's way of shining down his love for me. The sun has been so bright and warm! Yesterday it reached 69 degrees, in Nebraska, in January! I forced myself to spend a little time in the sun today and took Blanca for a walk. The sun really warmed my soul and made me feel so good I decided to go to the grocery store.

I thought it would help out the Cookie Monster since he's been working hard all day. I was in the produce aisle loading up on $1 Avocados when a man shouted out at me, "you are delicious!" I looked up and I was the only one around. I couldn't help but crack a smile. Then he turned away and looked at his friend and said, "she's just BAM in the face."  O my nelly, I couldn't stop laughing. I suppose that was a compliment? Boy did it shock me. Here I was feeling lousy wearing the baggiest clothes I could find in my closet and somebody says something like that to me. I'm still laughing about it.

In summary the tidbit for today is: 

I challenge you to compliment a stranger today, you might be surprised how much it might mean to them, even if it's a bit of a crazy compliment. I hope that it's sunny where you are and that you are able to spend at least a few minutes in it.

P.S. I know y'all have some great ideas. I would love for you to to share them! E-mail me your Tidbits, include a picture if you have one and I'll feature you in an upcoming Tidbit Tuesday post that I will link up to your blog. I even created a new button that you can grab!
