In this unique season of family , we have the opportunity to be intentional about our self-care, our relationships, and even taking care of the home we live in.
Here’s Day 20:
Romans 8:38-39. Nothing can separate us from God’s love.
Name your losses and grieve. Have you ever had a funeral for your disappointments? This is an important concept for embracing grief and loss (and we’re all experiencing that right now). My friend Barb explains how to do that here.
Plan for candlelight dessert tonight for two. Put the kids to bed, light some candles and enjoy. If your kids are teens and going to bed later than you sometimes, enjoy your candlelight dessert in your bedroom or somewhere private.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Kids: It’s a great day for a puppet show. Have your kids make puppets using socks, or paper bags, or even cut-outs on a stick. Have them make up stories they can share in their puppet show.
Teens: Make a fun lip-syncing video today. (And if you want, have some fun and do it with your teen like this dad did!)
Power walk–throw in some intervals of running or jumping jacks every few minutes.
Touch base with an aunt or an uncle you haven’t talked to in a while.
Choose a kitchen cabinet to clean out and reorganize today. There’s probably one that’s been bugging you!
