My maid said something to me this week that really surprised me – “Thank you for being so nice.”
I looked at her funny when she said it because I do not remember going out of my way to do nice things for her. On my way to work, I started thinking about what I did that was so “nice”. I tell her thank you sometimes, I leave leftovers for her to take to her kids, and when she does a really good job at something, I let her know.
I have also noticed that she has been doing extra things around my house that I didn’t ask her to do – organizing my closets and my kid’s dresser drawers (could be a small hint, not sure). 🙂
Coincidence? Probably not.
Everyone needs a pat on the back sometimes. Think about how good it feels when someone thanks you for something or tells you that you did a good job. Don’t you feel motivated to keep doing good things when that happens?
Just a little food for thought. Have a great weekend!
