Web of Love

Listen to how a simple ball of yarn became a web of love for one classroom of high school students.

Their teacher seated the students in a circle on the carpeted floor. One member of the group was instructed to toss a ball of yarn to someone across the circle, holding tightly to one end. The recipient took hold of the string and listened as the one who tossed it shared something that she especially liked about him. Keeping hold of the string, he then tossed the ball across the circle to someone else and affirmed something positive about her.

The ball of yarn was tossed across and around the circle until everyone had both heard and shared encouragement and thus the yarn became a woven web of love and good feelings.

Before they went their separate ways, the teacher took scissors and snipped through the web. Each person took a piece of yarn away as a remembrance of the special words they heard. Surprisingly, many of them wore cherished pieces of yarn around their wrists for days and weeks afterward.

Every year now, students ask their teacher to end the term with the Web of Love. It has become an annual tradition in their high school. Which goes to show how much encouragement means to most people.

Why wait? We can find opportunities to affirm others throughout the day. Few people grow weary of hearing sincere appreciation and praise.

And each time you give it you help to create an invisible web of love that can last a lifetime.

What's Prettier Than Freckles?

An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws.

'You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!' a girl in the line said to the little fellow. Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head.

His grandmother knelt down next to him and said . . . ‘I love your freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles,'  . . . while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. 'Freckles are beautiful.'

The boy looked up, 'Really?'

'Of course,' said the grandmother. 'Why just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles.'

The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face and softly whispered . . . 'Wrinkles'

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it
