Despite a hard and harsh winter much of the countryside across Ireland is burnt and brown. It will take many weeks for growth and recovery to take hold again. One exception is this beautiful Daphne flower which has a beautiful scent and really stood out in the scented garden at Millstreet Country Park over the weekend.

‘Everybody needs encouragement. None of us achieves anything without help. The great achievers in history became all that they were because of great people in their lives.’ ~Bob Gass

It was Mark Twain who once said that a compliment would keep him going for a whole month. What if we got a compliment every day? What a difference it would make to our lives and to our world. Throughout scripture there is a clear pattern of encouragement and compliments. In the book of Proverbs we are told that pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to our bodies. The impact of a compliment to a child or young person can be life changing. The impact of an encouraging word in a moment of crisis or difficulty can be a huge turning point. We all know the negativity and restrictions that go with a recession. It is clearly a challenging time. We desperately need to support each other, particularly with words of encouragement and getting people to believe in their own abilities and self worth. Every word of encouragement is priceless and its value and impact go way beyond our wildest expectations.
