Sometimes my days are so busy and rushed.
I fail to remember how thrilled I was when the LORD fulfilled a wish
fervent prayer of mine, one I had petitioned for many, many years.
I promised myself when I brought our little blue bundle
home from the hospital, that he would never be
“the interruption” in my life,
***Touch your children as often as possible.***
A little stroking of the hair or a snuggle on your lap as you type helps a child feel likeyou’re engaged with him/her while you interact.
Teach him how to do something unusual, like sewing.
Always smile at your children when they approach you.
and whisper the nickname in the child’s ear when you hug him/her.
For a few years, our son’s nickname was “Kimba”
He loved an old show called KIMBA the White Lion, and he identified with the main character, so he wanted that to be his nickname.
While they are very young, the nicknames will change from time to time, but for some time, children will light up and smile when using the pet names for them.
Time is fleeting, and these days with our young children will soon be gone. Take some time to reflect on how you will demonstrate the love you feel for them. The rewards will benefit beyond your expectations.
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
