Unconditional love is something that we can all give to our children (& the other significant people in our lives): Praise them by giving a compliment for any achievements (find something everyday); Encourage them by expressing belief in their abilities & potential; Support them by showing that you are on their side by being present, listening & expressing compassion when they have a bad day; Feedback by helping them to see another perspective on something that they didn’t see.
This is so funny. Al and I were actually discussing the “nothing box” this past weekend, only I didn’t know it had a name. It is all about how men can think about nothing and still manage to breathe!
Discernment is a word that we should pay more attention to. We all say we don’t have time. Discernment will free us up from being “busy”, to spend time on the important things. Is it more important to watch that TV or spend time with our children one on one; finishing that project that you are going to get to tomorrow; calling your parents just to say I love you; spending some cuddle time with that significant other?
