Encouragement is everything, even if it’s from a pink ice-cream cone
I have a pink ice-cream cone by Marc Johns on my bulletin board. Every day I look at my pink ice-cream cone, and every day she says the same thing, “You can do it.”
Some days I believe her. And some days I don’t.
Her name is Betty. I bought her last Thanksgiving. A present to myself. A present to myself from Marc Johns, a Canadian illustrator who draws whimsical ice-cream cones and people and birds.
I am in the middle of finishing a book I wrote. Well, the book is finished, now I am drawing cartoons for the inside of it. And some days I feel like I can’t do this. I can’t finish the book.
And on the days where I think I will never finish the book, I walk over to Betty the pink ice-cream cone, and she reminds me, “You can do it.”
And then I do.
And so will you.
I believe in you.
“You can do it.”
Please encourage someone today. One word of encouragement can change the course of history.
Have you ever been encouraged by a pink ice-cream cone? Have you been encouraged by a friend? As always I love to hear from you.
