I’ve always taught my kids: encouragement is the greatest gift we can give each other. In fact I’ve already written about this previously when two of my mentors passed away while we were sailing. But I wanted to share how my daughter Karina took this idea literally and gave me the greatest gift for Christmas one year. I have kept these cards in my desk, and every now and then I pull them out and look through the stack. I feel more confident and competent every time I do.
I feel like Christmas is a time of encouragement. It’s like a little reminder from God saying, “no matter what your hopes, dreams, regrets or worries are,” I can help.
Who has encouraged you? How has it changed you? Leave a comment and, who knows, maybe you'll encourage someone. And don't forget to visit www.iamawesome.com : )
