My husband and I like to get a quarter pound of fudge from Fudge Yeah, and eat a slice (or two!) in the evening as a treat with a cup of tea. This happens after the kids are in bed. Not because we don’t like to share, but, well, this is just for us. My current favorite is a teeny slice of butter pecan fudge.

Mother’s Day is fast-approaching and we would like to take a minute to encourage the Mothers out there. ¬†Whether you fell¬†into the job by accident or have dreamed of it for years, whether today is a good day or a bad one, this job takes a tremendous energy and effort. ¬†As my Mother once told me, “This too shall pass!” ¬†I’m pretty sure that I didn’t respond to that encouragement the right way and it’s¬†such¬†a clich√© but it does pass, and all too quickly at that!
So, today, we positively encourage. ¬†Encourage the smile. ¬†Encourage the patience. ¬†Encourage the beauty. ¬†Encourage the energy. ¬†Encourage the work. ¬†Encourage the heart. ¬†Encourage the spirit. ¬†Encourage the LIFE!
This next generation is ours to raise. ¬†Big job! ¬†Hard job! ¬†Positive encouragement makes it easier. ¬†And when you hear the encouragement, say Thank you!
