Who Deserves a Medal (Tin)?

Embossed Silver Tins

Are you caught up in the Olympic spirit yet? I can’t get enough of it. I love watching the events, getting caught up in the back stories, celebrating the victories, and mourning the disappointments. The athletes are amazing and inspiring.

But non-athletes are amazing and inspiring too, which got me to thinking: Where are the medals for the everyday people who quietly reach for excellence, working hard to achieve goals that are otherwise unnoticed?

Maybe it’s up to you and me to notice. Today, let somebody know that you’re proud of them. Thank them for always going above and beyond what is expected. Reward them for hard work that is otherwise unrewarding. Congratulate them on a personal victory. Celebrate their determination.

Trust me, it will make you feel like gold!

    my daughter amanda should get a medal, not just because she is a great daughter, but because she can not stand bullys. it dosen’t matter who is doing the bullying, large or small, friend or foe, and it doesn’t matter if the person being bullyed is a friend or someone she has never even seen. she will all ways stand up for the person being bullyed. there have been many times she has come home from school telling me that she almost got beat up, or that she was yelled at and threatned all because she stood up for some one who was being bullyed. the most amazing thing is that i have never had to “teach” her this, its just a part of who she is. with all the peer presure she has to deal with she always chooses the right path. i am not saying that she is perfect, just that she is a good girl, and thats not always easy to find now a days. thank you
