In a world of much anger, stress, complication, and often isolation, the impact of kind and encouraging words can be powerful, beautiful, crucial, and perhaps even provide the impetus for a willingness to reach a little higher, try a little harder, smile a little wider, and shine a little brighter.
A gift of encouragement.
