How to say "I'm Thinking Of You"

Did a song you heard on the radio recently make you think back fondly on an old friend?

Did you see a cute bauble in a boutique and think, "That looks like something Stacy would wear. She is so stylish!"

Did you find yourself eating lunch alone and missing the co-worker who moved on to a new job?

Did you turn down a new responsibility and remember how a former mentor taught you how to say 'no' gracefully?

Or perhaps you've had someone on your mind for a long time and don't even know why.

Maybe you recently stepped down from a leadership team, changed jobs or churches or executed a successful event and were left wondering, "Did anyone really even notice??"

It seems to me that many of us wonder if and when anyone ever thinks of us...yet we think about people day in and day out and rarely take the time to tell them. We've probably all been in both positions: thinking about people but letting the opportunity to acknowledge it slip by...or left wondering if anyone out there is thinking of US.

Doesn't it feel good when you get a text that says, "Saw your Facebook status, how are you feeling today??" or when you get a greeting card amidst all the bills in the mail or when a friend surprises you with an iced coffee in the morning?

In today's technological world, that person-to-person connection is often lost. Even for people who blog or post a lot on Facebook, it can be discouraging and lonely when people rarely comment or interact with your content. People are saying a lot--but we're not talking very much.

People--and women in particular--crave that attention, admiration and acknowledgement. They want to know that they are seen, appreciated, missed and that someone is listening. They want to know that someone notices when they're not there.

In my opinion, the best way to say "I'm thinking of you" is to let the person know what happened that brought them to your mind. It could make someone's day (or week or month!).

Who have you missed, noticed or thought of lately? Maybe they were in a dream you had or their name came up in a conversation. Maybe you miss their smiling face at work or at church. It doesn't take much time or effort to simply say, "I thought of you today!" I guarantee you, they'll love to hear it.

Here are just a few of my favorite ideas. Would you take a moment to add your own favorites in the comments? And if you tell anyone you're thinking of them, I'd love to know how they reacted! :)

I've been wanting to watermark my pictures (some of them are getting pinned to Pinterest, hooray!) and quote myself here and this is one picture I ran across that I thought was cute.

Spring where I am

How does Spring spring in the valley of the sun, you ask?

Well, we have peaches growing on our peach tree in the back yard.

Aren't they cute??

Today my mom and I took our time at Home Depot. I got new succulents for my polka dot pots for the back patio. Low maintenance, baby!

And an itty-bitty succulent for my Goodwill teacup.

The only flowers I buy are geraniums because I can actually keep them alive. This one is out back so I can enjoy it from the porch or swing.

I added a pink geranium to my bird cage by the front door.

I decided that I needed to add a little life to the inside of our house, too, so I got a new houseplant. It's called a Dragon. I'm still looking for the perfect pot. Probably turquoise.

I think I like this spot, though.

Just a few little touches of nature and color but I like it!

Spring has definitely sprung here. What are YOU doing to invite Spring into your home?
