A handwritten note

I was paging through some of my old books on water colour painting when this handwritten note slipped out onto my lap.  It is a note of encouragement from an old boyfriend of 10 years ago.  My heart went a little fuzzy for a while.  I loved that he took the time to write a note of encouragement at a time when I didn't feel like a great (or even mediocre) artist.  I doubted my ability to paint, to create anything beautiful.  I was struggling.  And then he added the little PS note at the bottom.  There is such unbelievable power in words.

Words have the power to heal, to give hope, to encourage and to build people up.  Go write a handwritten note of encouragement to someone today.
