What's the Nicest Thing Anyone Has Ever said to You?

I'm just curious about other peoples experiences....

I got the nicest card from the parents of a critically ill baby I took care of over the last few months in which they thanked me for "saving his life"... while it was a whole team of us that did and not just me and it was very touching, and it actually made me cry...lol

Then the other night after debating on who was funnier, Terrance and Phillip or Mr Hanky, my boyfriend told me that sometimes he forgets that I'm his girlfriend, that I'm someone he feels like he's been best friend with for years, that he's got the best of both.... again, this got the tears going too...lol

I swear I'm not an emotional person, but this past week has been a doozy. hope you dont mind the rambling! Anyone else got stories to share?

Behind closed doors and under stars
It doesn't matter where you are
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Don't let a soulmate pass you by

hi Raging! So you're a nurse???? Isn't it great when some one recognizes a job well done?

I have a kinda sucky job, it's being a tax assessor. Last Monday, a really nice couple had me over for lunch by their pool. They said I was the only person who helped them when they were buying their house. Thoughtful people like that really make it all worthwhile

Well, any conversation in which I get called a "good frend" or something like that touches me deeply. I really try to keep those friendships alive!

Hmmmm....a couple come to mind

"You keep talking about these nice guys I might meet - YOU are the standard they have to live up to." (me=speechless)

"You make me happier than anyone has ever made me." <-- it doesn't get much better than that.

"You are not a failure. You are loved. Don't let anybody make you think otherwise."

I will NEVER EVER forget that. Very simply, but it was a huge wakeup call considering what was going on.

gah someone I can't see anymore

"Look out for that pothole."

Seriously though,

"Thank You"


Uncertainty...it can be a guiding light

When I left my job a few years back for another job my co-workers gave me the usual card with everyone's signatures. A good friend of mine included the following poem:

A friendly morning smile
Another coat on the hook
Dressed in superb style
Always gets that second look
Performs the work of many
Received thanks from few
Good-bye and good luck
We will all miss you!

Probably the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me!

"Uh, it's not fair, you set the curve every time." In history last year.

No really, ummm, I'll have to search for that. But lately the nicest thing said about me was:

"I know Lilly personally, and she is a very intelligent and witty young lady with a great sarcastic sense of humor."

*bluuuush* thanks zone...

I will not expose the ignorance of the faculty.

"I guess you're the only one who will make an A in my class.."

- please dont take this in the wrong context..

Ever seen an Alice with a blossom like that? Come to think of it, did you ever see an Alice??

I once had someone tell me I was very friendly and "down to earth" - that meant a lot, esp. since I live in a very superficial city where there isn't much of that to go around...

I also had a couple people tell me I should be a comedian, but ack! not with my fear of crowds!
