Today is Wednesday, which means it’s time for the Inspirational word of the day.

Encourage: (verb) 1) to inspire with courage, spirit or confidence. 2) to stimulate by assistance or approval. 3) to promote, advance or foster.

Thanks to dictionary.com for the definition.

Today was a snow day!!  Thanks to my girlfriend Debbie for posting it on FaceBook this morning so I could go right back to bed!  (Thanks to her assistance, I was encouraged to get more sleep!)

I was pleased to see that my neighbor Jim cleared my drive-way before I could get to it this morning!  Sa-Weet!!  (Thanks to Jim’s assistance, I was encouraged to take my walk sooner!)

My girlfriend Molly (the executive director of the DDA)  has been working on putting together the DDA website and it has turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!  We’re starting the 2010 Sponsorship campaign this week! Now is our chance to encourage people to connect, participate and link themselves to the good stuff that is happening within our community.  So go check out downtownortonville.org to see what we have to look forward to here in Ortonville, Michigan.   (Thanks to Molly and the DDA, I am encouraged to promote the events, businesses and people in my hometown!)

Today was my first tele-conference call on Havi Brooks’ Kitchen Table.  Each of us had the chance to talk about what we’ve been working on and get advice and encouragement from the others.  (Thanks to Walt, Janet and Pearl for making my first time painless and helpful! )

What about you, my friendly blog reader, who encouraged you today?

In response to the stormy seas of life, my husband Blake and I have created this website to be a Current of Inspiration, a wave of love and joy to wash away hate and fear. By posting every week, it's our commitment to making our world a better place. We hope you find it uplifting and will share it with your friends! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
