feeling appreciated

In Uncategorized on April 6, 2010 at 10:56 pm

“you’re amazing.”

“that’s very sweet of you!”

“a round of applause for w!”

“yes, it’s very good.”

i made biscotti yesterday

dipped half of them

in melted



(that didn’t quite melt

the way i wanted them to)

plain biscotti

flavoured with



vanilla powder

they tasted just like

vanilla cookies

but harder.

i brought them

into english class

for our little poetry cafe


i was complimented

looked at with admiration


i felt so


and finally remembered what it was like

to feel appreciated

for going the extra mile.

i am now contemplating making red wine biscotti for parent-teacher conferences.


How do you feel when you’re complimented?
