Last night, a good friend said “you’re wonderful, you do know that don’t you?” and something embarrassing happened; I cried. We were saying goodbye after a Christmas carol service, crying really wasn’t part of the plan.
The thing is, I go into to schools with stories and songs I’ve written, ultimately to tell children just that, “you’re wonderful, there’s only one like you”. I’d forgotten how powerful these words are and how much we all need to hear them.
So this Christmas, if you think someone’s wonderful, why not look them straight in the eye and say it like you mean it.
