No matter how busy your days might be this holiday season, do yourself a favor and spend 10 minutes talking with a child before bedtime. If you don't have any kids, visit a neighbor, call a grandchild, niece, nephew, or cousin ... just chat with them and feel the honest love.
Ask them simple questions like, "What was your favorite part of today?" And listen, really listen to their response; it will help you realize what is important, and it will make them feel special because you cared enough to ask.
If you really want to enjoy the call, find something silly to say that will make them giggle ... a child's laughter is truly the the most soothing music the soul could ever hope for.
This really is a simple way to help relieve some holiday stress and put the emphasis back in the right place.
It's all about connecting ... most kids are easy to connect with, and the rewards are beautiful~
I hope you share many giggly moments this season,
