Five minute Friday

Hi Everyone,
I have found something new, and am going to give it a try. I don't know what I am going to write or if I am to late to enter, but it is a nice word, and It can't do any of us any harm to think about it.
I don't know if I can write for five minutes, but Let us give it a try.
The word is Encouragement.
What a wonderful word.
Encouragement is in a way giving people love, it is persuading them in a very nice way that they can do something.
Like I was about to give up colouring and making cards, when I was given a top three spot in a challenge I entered, and that was so encouraging that I am now swimming with idea's and ready to carry on. I am not a very good drawer, but there are so many wonderfully talented people out there, producing the most fantastic, rubber and digi stamps, that any one who puts there mind to it, can colour and make card's. In fact to make cards you don't even need stamps and colouring, you can make cards from virtually anything, and a bit of imagination, and we all have imagination, whether we like to admit it or not.
In Fact I would say that writer's should make very good card maker's, as you cannot write if you have no imagination, and if you can imagine something, you can usually make it.
So come on all you writer's I am sure that if you take a bit of time out, you can make the most beautiful cards for your friends and family and save yourself a fortune.
So I encourage you all to try.
And I want to thank you all for this, as this has encouraged me to write, and given me some idea's for cards, so thank you all for the encouragement.
And that I am afraid is it, as I dyslexic I type very slowly and my five minutes is up.
I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend.
Love and best wishes.


  1. Anne, I love how honest and sweet your post is. I am thankful to have "met" you via Five Minute Friday, and I think you have a wonderful talent for encouraging others--I can only imagine how nice your cards are!

    Many blessings to you!

  2. Hi Selena,
    Thanks for the visit and the wonderful comments. I really do appreciate both.
    I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.
    Love and best wishes.

  3. Hi Anne,
    great piece, and a nice find, some how for me the words to put in the cards are a lot easier than making the cards; perhaps that is how it should be, people working together, using their best talents to produce a great end result. As for encouragement, we all need it, and need to share it with others, son that inspiration and creation can be enjoyed by all. Thanks, be strong, love Charles.

  4. A wonderfull piece on your thoughts about encouragement. It's good to encourage people so that they realise that there are some things that they can do that they think they can't, and that there are some things they already do that they can do better.
