Tomorrow we’ll wrap up our series on multi-generational living.
Today, I wanted to reflect on the biggest take away from successfully living with both parents and children.
Little things matter.
They truly do.
They may not seem like much, but these small actions can have a huge impact on the overall mood of the multi-generational home.
We don’t always have the opportunity to help in big, flashy ways. However, everyone can do something.
Examples of How Some Little Things Made a Big Difference
Picking up something for your parent when you’re already out.
Reading a book to the grandchild.
Rescuing the baby from eating pumpkin seeds.
Shutting the chicken coop for the evening.
Those small actions matter!
All of those little actions (and more) together, over time, build habits. They build habits of helping, of caring, of loving.
When you have three generations of people trying to make it work in a single house, it really is all about the little things.
I challenge you this weekend–find one small thing you can do to make someone’s life easier. Little things truly are blessings.
When you’re done, I’d love to have you come and share with me. Tell me what you did and who you did it for.
Then keep looking for small ways to help, and make blessing others a large part of your life.
Do you have any reflections to share about this series?
