National Compliment Day.  

You never know the impact you may have, even by offering a small note or comment of thanks, appreciation, or a compliment.  You could change the course of a person’s day and alter their outlook with the simplest of gestures.  A challenge to offer a compliment today to someone you may not have considered before, or to those you interact with every day.

Aye!
