Please help - ISO uplifting and encouraging thoughts, quotes....

For Christmas this year I am playing Santa for a family. This has been a pretty rough year for them and I would like to make a special gift for the mom. I would like to fill a small box with heart shaped papers each with a note of encouragement, love, scripture, verse, story.... (pretty much whatever you think will help her when she needs a little boost). I was hopping that some of you would write a little something for me to print out and put on one of these hearts, it doesn't have to be long just a little sunshine for this time in her life would be awesome.

That's a great idea Kaleena! I'll put a little something below to help you out smiley

The best thing that someone has ever told me was 'never forget that you're a beautiful person with a beautiful soul'

you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter thank you think. AA Milne

you are a person of extreme value and significance

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37

God loves you.

“But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance” (1 Ne. 1:20).

One of my favorites: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

There could also be some shorter ones like "go you!" "you can do it!" "smile!" "keep going!"

Thanks Sharilynn & Catherine!

Did you see Brooke's recent Encourage kit? It was these great word arts.

I love this quote, for when times are tough and you have to keep working hard to make things happen:

"God gives a bird it's food, but He does not put it in it's nest." - Unknown

I used to have a notebook for encouraging quotes, but I don´t know where it is, so, a little something found on my Pinterest:

"Today is the beginning of anything you want"

"Life isn´t about waiting from the storm to pass, but about learning how to dance in the rain"

"Do more of that makes you happy"

"Let your past make you better, not bitter"

"There are brighter days ahead" (this is a Brazilian saying I just remembered)

"If nothing ever changed there wouldn´t be any butterflies"

"When it´s dark enough you can see the stars" - Ralph W. Emerson

Yes - I did Marisa - thanks for the reminder.

Thanks Marlene & Lórien

The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely

I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars

The Best Dreams can happen when you are awake

You probably don't need any more but at least you have many choices and more....

Believe in yourself, others will follow.

Cherish your dreams. Follow your passions. They are the guiding hands of your heart.

Don't miss the magic of the moment by focusing on whats to come.
