You know it's been a thriving kind of day when you happily sit down in the evening and realize you feel satisfied. We didn't have any grand experiences or events in our lives today. On the contrary, we simply made cookies as a family and delivered them to friends. The time spent together was dusted with flour and sprnkled with laughter. We teased each other good naturedly and lovingly talked and chatted about our day as we worked. Making cookies together is definitely a recipe for thriving.
Today's thought is short and sweet (sugar-filled actually!) Find some way to spend a little time together doing something simple. Perhaps it's washing the dishes together after dinner or cleaning the living room. Maybe you have a favorite board game you like to play together or a cherished book you can read aloud to each other. It could be that taking a walk, riding bikes, or playing catch in the yard is a simple activity your family enjoys, or maybe you would rather take time to look through old family pictures and reminisce about fun vacations and happy memories. Whatever you like to do with your family, invest a little time with them today and the returns could be especially sweet. Happy thriving today!
