Day 418 ~ #11 of My 30 Days of Truth...

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you {me} the most on.

Okay.  There aren't enough hours available in the day for me to come up with an answer to this one any time soon.  Phew!

Once upon a time I had been complimented on my blue eyes or even my smooth long brown hair.  

As far as I was concerned it really wasn't a big deal.  Especially since now-a-days "aging" wants to get a hold of me... my beautiful blue eyes are hidden by glasses (I have trouble with both distance and reading)... and my hair... well let's just say the gray hair is starting to take off like ivy!

As time went on, my artistic genes took off ... there were my drawings, my paintings and my pottery.  I was and am so proud of my art work.  Can't wait to get back behind the potter's wheel... my absolute favorite!

There also have been compliments of great family, good cooking and even good blogging... I will let you be the judge of the latter.  wink, wink.
Everybody likes a compliment.  ~ Abraham Lincoln

Share some photos of your artwork with us!!! PLEASE :)

Pepper said...

We love compliments, don't we? They motivate us to keep being good at whatever we do.

Oh, are there pictures of your artwork here on your blog? I must see them :)

Mom Blogger said...

What a great post idea! Love it. Gave me a smile today, my grey hair is taking over too . .sigh.


I think you are right, everyone needs to have a compliment, and not just randomly but consistently. It doesn't matter how old we get, we can always use a compliment.

I think we also need to take time and give ourselves a compliment. This one I find quite difficult but it could make all the difference if we did it consistently.

You really are doing so well with this. There you go, another compliment!

GJT said...

I think as women, we're so willing to dismiss a compliment, not letting it totally sink or or really listen to it. I think it's great that you're getting compliments now that have nothing to do with appearance, but with spirit and soul.

Agreed, you are doing a great job with your blog! :)

Wendy said...

So enjoy reading what you share through these devotions! Would love to see more of your artwork! Blessings!

Anne @ Green Eggs and Moms said...

Oh I did not know that you painted! Would you post a picture of a few?? Would love to see some, but of course, only if you want to post them.

Victoria Staples said...

I agree, people need to hear more about the nice things that are said about them than the negative. If someone compliments another person without them knowing it... I always pass it along to that person at work. Too often at work people are only told about the worst of you and not the best... I like to share the best! great post.

Hey! Pottery class is on my "50 before Fifty, too!" :) I don't usually like messy hands, though. So, it's going to be a challenge. Have we seen your art before?
