What's encouraging you these days? What's keeping your spirits up? Daily at 10 am and 4 pm, we'll post new bits of encouragement from us and you.
Please Note: This is our third Bits of Encouragement page (starting May 19) because each one can comfortably hold only about a month's worth of material. If you'd like to visit the two previous pages, go to https://menucha.org/bits-of-encouragement and https://menucha.org/bits-of-encouragement-starting-april-19
As before, we'll just keep adding new items to this top area of the page, so you'll be able to scroll down and see past posts.
Send your inspiring stories of hope, compassion and care.

Mary Flower: "Times Get Better"
"Waitin' for the Times to Get Better" seemed very fitting for our times. Doc recorded a beautiful version and I did my best to do it justice. I saw Doc sitting under a shade tree at Bean Blossom in 70's and he played "Deep River Blues" for me, a memory that stays close to my heart." #DocWatsonWeekPosted by MerleFest on Friday, May 22, 2020
