Last year at this time I started a fun tradition of reminding my family why I love them. Initially, it seemed like a cute, fun way to decorate the bedroom doors of my home with heart-filled declarations. A beautiful side benefit of this activity is that it reminded me how much it means to my daughters to see me love my husband. They take in everything and smile a little brighter when they see that my love exists as much for him as it does for them. Since I can often be louder and sloppier about it with them.
Here are just a few of the proclamations that will adorn the walls of my hallway this year:
“I Love You Because”…
– you make funny faces at just the right time
– you trust me
– you make me feel brave
– you love when I’m silly
– you take care of your friends
– you make me laugh
– you truly listen
– you think of others
I put these up on February 1st and finish up on Valentine’s Day. It makes me feel just as happy as it does them.
