a compliment

the other day, one of my middle schoolers said to me,

"when you smile and my head is down, i can hear how happy you are in your voice."

it was the sweetest,
most genuine

it felt like a hallmark card was just given to me,
wrapped up in the voice of a preteen.

i don't know if she'll ever know the impact she made on me.

and i think it's amazing how a simple compliment
cannot only influence your day,
but even the days to come.
