Here in the USA we are beginning a new school year. It is a time of challenges, new opportunities and new beginnings. To ENcourage means to give or impart courage. The opposite is to DIScourage or remove or take away courage. It is my goal to encourage whenever possible and I appreciate those who encourage me. My friend Pat Cullen-Carroll sent this along. He says his cat watched it and turned into a lion....not sure about that, but it is fun anyway.
