COMPLIMENTS

You are such a gift to our team, she said.
and the words touched my heart
and nourished my soul.

At some level I know others words
should not matter,
but sometimes they are
what I need to hear.

Sometimes it does help
to hear those affirming words,
those compliments from others,
those answers to hidden prayers.

We forget that compliments
nourish our soul and the souls of others.

We forget to feed others
with words which
nourish their self esteem,
remind them they are of value,
and they too are creators of the Ultimate.

May we remember that compliments
are a way to feed God’s sheep,
to demonstrate love for one another,
and to heal wounded souls.
