One of my favorite things is to encourage others. Naturally, this also means that I love encouraging words as well. In my closet sits a worn box that holds various notes filled with encouraging words. Some are creased and fading with age and others are fresh from current years. Every time a note is received, my heart overflows with gratitude for the encouragement, so I store up these words letting them build as reminders of what is good.
Life is full of a lot of challenging moments. Between motherhood, marriage, friendships, family relationships, work struggles, financial challenges and so on, the trials can pile on heavy. Whether it is the big struggles or the small, we all need regular encouragement in our lives.
