But you know, we can all do it … how ’bout we each try to go out of our way this week to say something nice to someone who’s obviously fighting something? It doesn’t have to be much. Try:
“A friend of mine fought cancer this year, and I just want to say, you look great.”
“My family’s had to deal with cancer, and I just want to say, you are so brave.”
“What a beautiful hat!”
or even just
“Hey, cute shoes!”
It only takes a second … but as you all reminded me yesterday, a couple words can make a world of difference.
What do you say — will you take this challenge with me?
