There it was when I opened my email this morning…
Thank you for your site.
Very sweet, encouraging, & interesting!
Words of encouragement from someone I don’t even know.
Welcome words of encouragement.
She didn’t know I’d gone to bed last night feeling discouraged because I haven’t been here with you since March! She didn’t know how much I’ve missed my time to write and tablescape and take photos. She had no idea.
But for some reason, she took the time to click on my contact button and write a few words of appreciation and encouragement.
I’ve already hit “reply” and thanked her… but I’ll thank her here, too.
Thank you, Pamela—wherever you are.
On yet another crazy-busy day at My Place, it was a nice reminder that words of encouragement—however few—are always welcome. A reminder that we don’t know what’s going on in the hearts and minds of people around us. A reminder that a smile or a quick word of encouragement is always appropriate—and welcome.
I really do hope to spend more time with you soon. I have so much to share with you! But until then—as I’m about to walk out the door to a meeting with architects on THIS project . . .
I hope whatever burdens you carry today will soon become lighter.
I hope your joys will be shared with others.
I hope your travel is safe and your commitments fulfilled.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
… and I hope you take a minute to encourage someone else with a smile, a card, a phone call—or an email to a blogger you don’t even know.
