And although family life as portrayed on The Walton’s and The Brady Bunch looked fascinating it was certainly never anything I longed for myself.

 

Besides, I had a plan. I was going to grow up and become a brain surgeon! That was the most difficult and important sounding job I could think when I was a child and I desperately wanted, no, needed, to be someone who mattered.

Life Giving Words, The Power of Words to Bring Encouragement

There is a time when the house is still. The kids are snug in their beds and exhaustion meets us where we lay. In those moments the words come. Life giving words. The words that didn’t flow as easily in the business of our hurried day. The words that need to be said more often than now. Words that build up and set hearts in motion.

I appreciate you.

          You’re funny.

                   You amaze me.

                           God designed you for this.

                                     You are a blessing.

                                                 I love you.
