A few days ago my dad texted me this:
“Good afternoon my BEAUTIFULLLLLL Princess. What are u going to do today to make it a wonderful day? I love you.”
Isn’t he the cutest?
I know it happened a couple of days ago, and I promised to write a lesson each and every day about something that inspired me or encouraged me or made me think that very day—but this is different.
I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
How wonderful is this?
We wish people a good day, or a better day. We say good morning, or good afternoon, or good night.
But how often is it that we are actively encouraging? Not just wishing greatness upon people, but encouraging them to create greatness for themselves? Saying to them—”You can do this, and I’m right here beside you”?
I just have to take a moment to acknowledge how absolutely lucky I am to have such an incredible father in my life. He doesn’t just love me, but encourages me and believes in me too.
Can you be that for someone today?
Can you be that for yourself?
As my dad would say:
“What are you doing to make today wonderful?”
