Good Words

I was reading through the mail yesterday and noticed a card that one of my wife’s friends had sent to her. It came to her the good old fashioned way via the United States Postal Service delivered right to our home. It seemed like a normal type of thank you card with lots of ‘thank you’ verbiage however at the end of this particular thank you note, were the words, “I am glad that you are a part of my life.”

Words are amazing little things that we often don’t give much thought too. Our words have a lot of power though. Power to build up or tear down. Power to inspire others or cause them to retreat. Power to encourage or power to destroy. I think that telling someone that you’re glad they are a part of your life ranks right up there on the list of best words one can say to another. Maybe today would be a good day to think about the words that we speak and to use our words to speak life to others. Maybe today would be a good day to let those we love know we love them instead of assuming they know. Maybe today would be a good day to tell someone that you're glad they are a part of your life.

Yes indeed... the power of a kind word and a simple hand written note. Unfortunately the handwritten note is a dying art. I do my best to keep it alive!
