    Encourage One Another

    I had a random thought tonight, while walking through the store. Someone that knew me (I have no idea who it was) asked me how I was doing. I answered the way that I always do, "good, thanks and you?" It's pretty rare that I respond any other way, even when that's not how I actually feel. I...
