Gifting Words of Encouragement!



Hello Friends!!

I hope you’re doing well and enjoying this amazing month of May!  By the time you read this blog post I will be in New Mexico for some time with my precious parents… and I’m planning to eat all the Mexican food! I’m really in need of some time to just sit and visit with my Dad as he hasn’t been feeling too strong and discouragement has started to set in.  You know when you are a hard working rancher that never quits… and suddenly you are forced to slow WAAAAY down, it is very hard.  I plan to make him laugh!  Smile!

    Hi Dori!

    I love the words of encouragement! What a great idea and they will fit nicely into a card to send in the mail as well. As I was reading your post, I thought of another thing … you could make these and hang them around different places for strangers to find (similar to painted rocks). It would make their day!

    I’m going to make a bunch. As always, thanks for these great ideas!

      Hi Carol,

      YOU are brilliant!!! I love the idea of leaving them for people to find. I think I just might try that! Let me know if you do too!
