By Word and Deed


Among others received, the above bouquet was a gift.

Of course, being me, I questioned the “why” prompting these unexpected gifts and in doing so, received yet another one.

“Because you’re worth it.”

Well, come to think of it, yes I am. ;)

Although you know there are people in your life who believe in your worth and who demonstrate this by deed, how many actually verbalize it?

Such a lovely thing to hear.

All this - and it’s not even my birthday yet!

How lovely that you got those! It is nice to be appreciated, a reminder that we should try to verbalise our appreciation of those around us too.

Absolutely! You are so worth it!

I always take the praise and compliment, because they are sometimes hard to come by. So you should definitely feel good about the fact someone showed appreciation!

Although I can't help thinking that these flowers are a May 1st Labor Day present in France - closet Socialist? :-D

You're worth every grand gesture there is, Beth!

I hate to pour vinegar on your dessert, but isn't 'Because you're worth it" an advertising slogan?

I'm sure it has to do with where I work because I'm always thinking of "motive." What is the motive behind the gift?

I love lilies of the valley. Pleased to know that your awesomeness is appreciated.

Although i know they will take over my garden I am going to plant some Lily of the Valley. Aren't you lucky to be given some. Hope you had a great long weekend.

A 'just because' gift is the best kind!

I'm worth it too, and I didn't get any flowers. ;)

They're lovely.
