I want to be an........ encourager.
There have been ones in my my life who have said, sent, or text'd that just right_uplifting_make me smile_comment at the opportune time and I am so thankful for them. We all need those people in our lives- the ones rooting for us, the ones who have our back, the ones praying us up when we can't muster the strength too.
For me, I may think something admiring of someone_ like how great their hair looks, how well they decorate, how disciplined they are with exercise, how they mother their children, etc... but I fail to tell them. Sometimes I do, but so many times the moment flees and I let it go. I don't speak it.....Speak it out.
Well my mind is made up__which I think will take some discipline, but I'm going to be an encourager. When the nice lady at the dentist helps me__I'm going to tell her so, when the teachers of my kids touch their lives in a way__I'm going to tell them, when my kids knock it out of the park at their baseball game__I'm going to tell them how great they did. I'm going to tell my husband when he fixes something, that to him doesn't amount to a hill of beans, but to me means everything. I'm going to let them know.
Let's just do it.....be an encouragement to someone today. I double dog dare you!
