On the National Day of Encouragement, I am uplifted by the tender acts, small and large, others have done to encourage me. Will you join me today and this week in encouraging someone? Simple, no cost ideas: call someone and say, “I love you” or “Thank you”; email an inspirational phrase, story, or faith quote; find a postcard or note card you never used and mail a simple message; say a prayer for someone; or smile at a stranger or an employee.

Coraggio = enCOURAGEment!
