Encouragement


Encouragement is that support... Which we can always use
... Especially when we have cause... To think that we may
lose... It lifts us up when we are down... And turns our tears
away... And proves there is a sunny side...To every rainy
day... Encouragement is good for us... In everything we
do... And naturally we ought to be... Prepared to give it too
... A pleasant word, a kindly deed... And just a friendly smile
... Are those ingredients that go... To make this life worth
while... Encouragement is something bright... That never
costs a cent... And yet it always does so much... To make the
world content.
