Just a quick post tonight…it’s getting late and my bed is calling! I still can’t believe I’ve managed to post every day for 14 days straight! Praise the Lord! Even if I don’t make it the full 31 days, this is the most consistent I’ve ever been with my writing!
End of side note.
Onto the post.
Now that fall is here, the evenings are shorter. The sky is growing dark earlier.
We were at church tonight, and when we pulled up, I saw that Dad had turned the porch light on for us. It made me smile.
Communication is essential in a multi-generational house. I know that I don’t HAVE to tell my dad when we’re going out for the evening, but I do because it’s the right thing to do.
That way he knows if he’ll be on his own for dinner, and can plan his evening accordingly.
He’s also getting used to our schedule, and knows that Wednesdays we eat dinner early and get home late. Tonight, he locked up the chickens and fed the barn cats since we’d be getting home after dark. When he came back in the house, he flipped on the light.
It was so sweet of him. Just a little reminder that he cared.
When Dad will be gone for an evening, he tells us. We try to make sure we leave the light on for him.
Taking care of each other, in every way possible, is what makes families grow closer.
Is there a little thing you can do to show your family you care? Even if you aren’t living in a multi-generational home, what is one little area that could show love?
Let’s leave the light on friends–there’s a lot of darkness out there! Our family needs us, and we need them.
