“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.”
William Arthur Ward quotes (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher
As a woman I distintly know all my faults and where I fall short. Women tend to be perfectionists alway worrying, wondering, praying and trying to be the best. I worry if I am ruining my children, if I am a good wife, dusting correctly (before or after vaccuming), and so on. I usually do not need to be reminded of where I fall short and yet I find women tend to be very critical with each other. My word for 2012 is Encouragement. I want to encourage others by seeing what they are doing right and letting them know about it. This includes myself as well. I am going to open my eyes and see what I am doing right (there must be something). I hope my blog reflects that this year. You are valuable!
