I received an encouraging note from a longtime friend a few days ago.
Just 25 words (including his name!).
It took about seven seconds for me to read it and probably just a little longer than that for my kind friend to write it.
It may sound dramatic, but I am not exaggerating when I tell you this simple message changed my life.
You see, every message we receive changes our lives in one way or another -- sometimes in good way, and sadly, sometimes in a not-so-good way.
