more encouragement....

The dictionary is full of words, but words to help, to assist and to encourage. They can have a lasting impact on a person. As Wilferd A. Peterson once said, "Words of encouragement fan the spark of genius into the flame of achievement. Legend tells us that Lincoln's dying mother called her small son to her bedside and whispered, 'Be somebody, Abe'!" Use these words to spark a flame.

      I like the one about the bumblebee who flies even though it should be impossible for it to do so...encouragement for those who are facing huge challenges and feel like they'll never make it. Never give up!
