(In)courage

One of my favorite writers introduced me to a new website today. She is a phenomenally heartfelt and encouraging writer in her own...right. But she found this new site called (In)Courage. I think it's great. Everyone needs a little inspiration and hope in their day and this is just the place to find it. She asked, in her post, what (in)courages us...and I left her a lengthy comment that I'll use as a post for now...

My (In)couragements...

holding my husband after a long day and how he rests his hand on the small of my back.

the earthy smells of the horse barn

how no matter how much you screw up or think you are having an EPIC FAIL kind of day...dogs,cats and horses don't judge you, they accept you for yourself.

simple things like the smell of tomatoes and evergreens

thinking 'i can't do it' and finding out that 'i can..i am...i did' whether it's running a mile or being patient.

That's where i find hope...where i find love and encouragement. In those simple things.

Awww..shucks. Thanks for being my (in)couragement today! You have been reading almost since the beginning of my blog and I can't tell you how much I love reading your thoughtful and often encouraging comments. And of course, I love coming by and seeing what's been on your mind lately. :)

Hope you enjoy the time you spend on the (in)courage site!
