I have a yahoo groups that I let lapse because too many things took over my time and I couldn't keep it going. However, I have started it back up again.

The link is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Encouragement_and_Inspiration/

And here is what it is about:
This yahoo group was born out of the pain the nation faced after September 11, 2001 along with the pain of those who lost their jobs through a very difficult economic time in the United States. Every day, we are acquainted and introduced to so many sources of pain and heartbreak in our worlds. While I do not want to focus on the pain found in this world, I do realize it is there. Therefore, I want to focus on encouragement and inspiration.

My goal is to write a short message of encouragement or inspiration every day and my only hope is that it will touch someone’s life in a very special way. Knowing that it has touched someone will be more reward than I would ever expect back from doing this.

In my own life, I have had ups and downs. Sometimes these occur simultaneously but I am learning to focus on the ups and put the downs in perspective. Thanks for joining and I hope not only is your life inspired or encouraged, but that you will share the inspiration and encouragement with those around you and with the world.

Don

Hey Don - It only takes ONE GOOD person to sew the seed of encouragement and inspiration in a person's spirit to make a change in their life. I know how much those efforts mean to me in tough times!!

Thanks for letting us know of the site! I'll pass the word on and use it myself!!

Howard

You are quite welcome. One of the things I have always lived by and often been called naieve for it is that I feel one person can make a differance, good or bad. This yahoo group is as much for me as it is anyone else because I often struggle to see the good side of life and yet it is there.
