LET'S START A TREND
When I went back out to WUG (acronym that stands for the three initials of the 5 original owners/siblings) after writing the "Affirmation" post, I told my cousin about it.
"I wrote a post about you," I said. She is not the extrovert so many of us WUGgers are, so I assured her I hadn't used her name or shown her picture. "I love how you said, 'I affirm that in you,'" I continued.
Adjusting her sun hat she said, "Someone said that to me once."
Clearly that person made an impression on my cousin, who in turn passed the favor on to me.
I vow to "affirm" someone today, to look deeply within their eyes, to listen intently and without agenda, to hear them, then to simply and beautifully say, "I affirm that in you."
Hell, I may even do it to/with my husband. Lord only knows how far that could ripple!
