Monday afternoon I ran into a friend whom I love but don't see often enough.  We visited a bit, she told me some funny stories and really encouraged me about my writing.  When I got home Monday, I had a sweet gift and note from another friend.  Last week, I received some very encouraging comments about my writing as well. Today I visited my mailbox at school to find another gift and note from a sweet friend.

These things always lift my spirits.  Especially during the crazy times of getting school started and trying to get back on a schedule.

And it reminds me that I should encourage people more.  Life gets in the way, doesn't it? What's the expression...the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.  I personally have 2 note cards on my desk waiting to be written.  

I think lots of encouraging thoughts but I don't take the time to write them or even tell people.   Encouragement is definitely a gift.  God intended us to encourage one another.  I'd like to do better in this area.

What's your favorite way to be encouraged?  A text, a note, a small gift?  How do you like to be recognized for your hard work?
