Ask a Family Member if they Need Anything During the Day
“How precious also are your thoughts to me…..” Psalm 139:17
This was a fun one. It was adorable how the littles asked everyone again and again if they needed anything. I think my little girl asked me five times!! I was surprised at the good will it brought about.
As a mom, I often feel invisible. My husband teases, “That’s how you know what a good job you are doing….when no one notices it unless you stop.” It was a pleasant experience to have family members checking in with each other about their needs.
I again observed that the older kids didn’t embrace this challenge the way the younger kids did. They did try though and little things can make a big difference.
Lord, teach us to anticipate the needs of others in our family and to ask what we can do when we are in doubt of what those needs are.
