|This is the message you have heard from the beginning:|
we should love one another. 1 John 3:11
Life around Seams Inspired's home has been a little nuts. We've been battling stomach bugs, historically snowed under and cooped up inside for days, and even experienced a 4.1 earthquake. Through it all, we've been leaving love-notes for one another. There's a pad of sticky notes & a pen atop the hallway table. We've encouraged the kids to tell each other 'why' they love one another & then stick the note on the family member's bedroom door.
This began as an exercise to look for love. We were experiencing a tremendous amount of sibling sparring. Has your family had that?...Kids sniping at one another for no good reason, looking to point out faults, and just plain 'ol being mean. We'd had enough & had to find a better way. Thus, Operation Loving Family was implemented. DH or I ask the kids each day, 'Have you written your Love Notes yet?'
Some days, they roll their eyes (teenagers!) but we always find new notes after the reminder. I think we'll leave the notes up & continue for a while. It's good to just love one another, isn't it?
How do you show love?
