I found this tiny little book "A little book of ENCOURAGEMENT" in our living room, with a bunch of quotes of encouragement...found them to be, well...encouraging I guess.

I just wrote all of them, since I don't know which ones will stand out to who. Not all of them stood out to me, but there are a lot.

Feel free to add your own, or discuss.
