The challenge for this week started on Monday, and although I've been working on the challenge, I haven't had a chance to blog about it. This is the challenge:
Keep your candle going, the music playing, and add some tender moments with your family. Have a pillow party in the family room and get out every blanket and pillow in the house and be cozy with the kids or your hubby! Even if you live alone you can do this. Enjoy a cozy evening of hot cider and caramel corn. Give a 5 minute back rub to every single person in your house...and for a double challenge- try to give one every day to each family member! During your tender moment with the family, ask them how they feel about this challenge. Are they enjoying it? Is it helpful? Is there anything they would change. Give your family listening ears.
We have had several cozy moments this week....with the candles burning, blankets out, all snuggled on the couch together. Last night, we all crawled into the "big bed" and watched the movie Tale of Despereaux, after spending time together making dinner and carving our pumpkins. I am sure that everyone felt cozy and relaxed watching the movie because we all fell asleep together! We're a close family and we do take time to just be together. I do hope that continues when the kids are grown. I'm sowing the seeds now, for a good relationship when they are adults.
Blessings and peace,
