Why, when it doesn't cost much time, money or energy...
don't I follow through as often as I like?
Because really, it doesn't have to take a long time,
or cost a lot of money,
or use too much effort,
to make them feel special each and every day.
Adding a bit of whimsy to a meal with a special syrup pitcher that was just sitting in the cabinet...took only a few minutes.
A choice to use kind, complimentary words rather than constant critique...is free.
Baking cookies from a brownie mix and a few extra ingredients...required minimal effort.
It is something I hope to do more and more
each and every day.
Since I am always on the lookout for ideas...
What are some ways you make your children/loved ones feel special?
