Find the joy and comfort in snuggling with those you love. The most important blessings in your life are the ones that cost you nothing but emotion, patience and love. Extend a little compassion for others and the stresses they have on their shoulders. Together your little family will make it through the challenges of the weekend.
It doesn’t cost you anything to celebrate the blessings of family and those that mean the most to you. A few quiet moments to snuggle or give a hug can make a world of difference in someone’s day. Especially when that someone feels they are at the end of the line and they’re losing hope.
You may not be able to ‘fix’ the problems, but you don’t have to add to them. You can help those around you by letting them know you’re aware, you care, and you’re there to help them stand and make it through another day.
Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a difference. Be the one to fix the pot of coffee for the morning, or set the pot up the night before so it only needs to be turned on. Do the dishes or mow the lawn so the person who normally does it can have a break.
Hold onto each other and remember who you’re working so hard for. Don’t let the work take you from the focus of giving a little time and attention to the ones who need it the most. Even if the work is for them in the long run.
