The best compliment



There is one compliment you can give me that will make me feel like a million bucks.

Like I'm on top of the world.

A compliment that will always make me smile, after I take a second to take it in. At first I don't really believe it, and I think the person saying it is just 'being nice', but the more I hear it, the more I begin to believe it is true. And you know what? It's nice to hear.

It's not hearing a compliment about my hair, and it's not about my smile, or what I'm wearing. It's not even about hearing "Hey! You look great - have you lost weight?" Which is pretty much the most awesome thing to hear, especially when you've been dieting and struggling to lose weight.

Nope.

The nicest thing in the world to hear - and the one compliment I appreciate more than any other is:

"You're a great mom."

That makes me feel so good! I don't think I will ever get tired of hearing that. I'm so thankful everytime someone says that to me. Because truly, there is nothing I love more in this world than being a mommy!

And yes, I do feed my children pizza and hot dogs!

There's no doubt that you're a good mom, Loukia. I don't know a mother who adores her children more than you do.

Lorraine said...

Yeah! I'm the first to comment:)

You are a great Mom Loukia. All one has to do is take one look at your happy little boys to know that.

Gosh, I feel like I haven't been over here in awhile. Must remedy that;)

That is the best compliment, isn't it? You obviously adore your boys and do your best by them!

Jessica said...

Definitely a great compliment! I also used to feel over the moon when people complimented me on my awesome dog hahaha. I have no idea if I'm directly responsible for Hollis being so pleasant, either, but I sure do like hearing it!

Sarah @sarahcasm said...

It's so awesome when people notice and make a point of saying it! There is nothing I would rather be than a good mother.

Um... what's wrong with pizza? :P

Theta Mom said...

It is so evident that you adore your kids and that IS the best compliment any one of us can receive. Awesome!

anya said...

Yes, that is a great compliment. The only thing better? When your kids tell you that your the best mom!!

Scary Mommy said...

You are a FANTASTIC mom-- pizza and hot dogs are totally acceptable. :)

And, you are amazing for sending me that gift card-- that was totally SO unnecessary, but THANK YOU. And next time you're in town I owe you a drink. Hurry up and come back!!

Mama Kat said...

It really is the best compliment isn't it!?!

That is a wonderful compliment and I'm sure you get it a lot. Pizza, hot dogs and all! ;-)

Lady Mama said...

Absolutely! I love hearing that too. Nothing better in the world.

Nenette AM said...

Doesn't that feel the best?! And fully deserved -- you are an awesome mom. :)
Now, when your kids say it, it truly brings tears!

Thanks for sharing. :)

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

That is a great comment!

Christy said...

My daughter loves pizza too. And it's so true - being a great mom is the best thing ever! And being recognized one is just the icing on the cake!

Neena said...

and you're gorgeous, too!

CaraBee said...

You are a WONDERFUL mom!! Those are pretty awesome words to hear!

Also, um, pizza and hot dogs are staples around here.

It is a fantastic compliment, one that I can't hear enough either. I almost always start to well up when someone tells me that I'm a good mom or that I'm doing a good job, I find it that emotional for some reason.

Lesley said...

that is the best compliment...and from everything I read...you are a great mom!

andrea from the fishbowl said...

You're SO RIGHT.
It is a great thing to hear, and to say. You are a great mom Lou!

Krystyn said...

Definitely one of the best compliments!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

You definitely have your priorities in place!

And my children live on grilled cheese sandwiches.

Chantal said...

I am with you on that one. :)

I could never hear this enough...
