Make the Days Count
Ever heard the saying Don’t count your days; make your days count?
It’s so easy to go through the motions of work, carpool, cooking, cleaning, homework and ballgames. But in the midst of it all, am I making the moments count with meaningful conversations or making simple deposits of encouragement into the lives of those I love?
I decided to get intentional the other day and thought of three people who could use some encouragement. Then I took a few minutes that week to encourage them. I wrote a note to my husband and sent it in an email, the next day I left a voicemail with a short prayer and let a friend hear me thanking God for something special about her. Later that week I posted on my son’s Facebook page, telling him I missed him because I was out of town. They weren’t huge things, but I could tell they meant a lot to the people I love.
