You Are Special Today

March 12, 2010

in the generous life

I bought a plate awhile back that says “You are special today” around the rim.  We actually use it quite a lot.  You are supposed to pull it out on birthdays and special days, but I find that folks need to know they are special more often than that.  If someone has had a rough day, they are likely to find it at their place setting.  Guests are pretty special as well.  And, of course, that is the “just because” reason.

I highly recommend the “special” plate, but you could get creative and make your own or just buy an outrageously pretty plate and make that your family’s special plate.

Appreciation can make a day, even change a life.  Margaret Cousins

We received this red plate from my aunt years ago, after my cousin died. So it has even more meaning to me. We haven’t used it as much, only on birthdays, so it’s a good reminder.

What a great idea! I have used keychains that say “You Are Special”, stickers and magnets, but never thought of a “You Are Special Plate!
I remember when I needed to know how special I was at a low point in my life, and now I sometimes just need to be reminded. How great to be able to share something POSITIVE…
Thank You so much for sharing!
