More and more families are making room for kindness and service on their family calendars. Whenever possible, I'll share their stories with you! One family we know decided to designate Thursdays as a weekly time for service, hoping that commitment would turn into a routine.
They were all set.
Then the inevitable happened. With dad out of town and the business of everyday life stacking up, Thursday came and went without the cookies.
We talked about past service projects and my son told me that his personality is such that he only cares about himself. My heart sunk.
I was reminded that this is the kind of quality time together that I love. Time well spent and a lesson about taking the time to do well for others.
