"Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over
it and whispers, 'Grow, grow.'" -The Talmud
"If ancient wisdom tells us that even a blade of grass needs encouragement, how much more do the people in our lives need us to whisper words of inspiration into their lives? Imagine the face of a child hearing, "You are so precious. You can do it. I'm so glad you were born." Picture the look on your loved one's face when you say, "You are perfect as you are. You are such a joy. I am here for you. Thank you for being in my life." And if you received continual whispers of "You are enough, just as you are," how would your life be different? Would you be better able to whisper encouragement into the lives of those you love?"
