One morning over the weekend, I woke up to the most beautifully written email from someone who was reading Wasteland. As I read the note, I cried.
And I mean cried.
I’m not going to post the note I received, I’ll keep that for myself, near and dear to me. But to read that something I’d written impacted someone in a positive way…well, it really just made me smile. Made my heart smile.
It’s amazing the power of a kind word. An encouraging word. It can lift someone up so high they have to look down to see heaven.
Now, did that person know her email would affect me so profoundly?
Did she know that I’d been feeling a little anxious about the upcoming release of Wasteland and how people would receive it?
Regardless. She took the time to send a letter of hope and encouragement, and it was at exactly the moment I needed to read it.
Then I started thinking, when’s the last time I encouraged someone? Took the time to send someone a special note?
Don’t wait another minute, you just never know how much that person might have needed to hear an encouraging word.
