31 Days of Celebrating the Moments that Matter-Day 1

Moments before leaving to pick him up from preschool, I grabbed a piece of scratch paper, cut it into a heart and with a red sharpie, I scribbled "I love you, Judah!".

As we drove down the road, chatting about his day, I passed it into the backseat and his face lit up. "Mommy! This is one of the nicest things I've ever gotten! Did you make this for me? I'm going to keep it for such a long time! Mommy, can I nap with this heart today?"

It was a last minute, simple idea and when I made it for him, I didn't think that it would be the "moment" of that day that I'd want to remember. However, his reaction was priceless and I can't imagine anything that could top how happy that little paper heart made him.

The moments that need to be celebrated are most often spontaneous and simple.

If you're following along for the "31 Days of Celebrating the Moments that Matter", and you'd like to be part of this challenge, go write one of your children a very simple note and give it to them when they least expect it.

  2. I cleaned my big kids' rooms and caught up all their laundry while they were gone at school. I didn't get much of a response, which was surprising, but I think they felt loved. Thank you for the inspiration.
