true north

I was the catcher so I couldn't be in the picture.



Read this on another blog and love how it encourages my heart toward my current true north...intentionality with my children.

Enjoy...

Here is a list of Seven Gifts Which Do Not Cost a Cent:

1.
The gift of listening - But you must really listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response ... just listen.


2. The gift of affection - with appropriate hugs, kisses, snuggling, pats on the back and handholding. These small actions demonstrate love in a powerful way.

3.
The gift of laughter - share amusing stories, humorous cartoons, jokes, etc. Laughter establishes a bond between people.

4.
The gift of a handwritten note - kind words change lives and last a lifetime.

5.
The gift of a compliment - a simple, kind and sincere remark can change how a person feels about him/herself.

6.
The gift of a favor - the simplest things like getting a glass of juice for your child or putting away hubby's shoes for him may not seem like much but demonstrate kindness to others in a big way.

7.
The gift of a cheerful disposition - the easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone. look him/her in the eye and speak kindly, from the heart with sincerity. {Proverbs 15:13 A Happy heart makes the face cheerful.}
