How great does it feel to hear that your name was picked when you entered to win something? Doesn't it make you feel special? When my name gets picked for a drawing I've entered, it's like a Christmas morning feeling for me. I get giddy and can't wait to claim my prize!
In our household we pick names too. All of our names get put in a bowl (including Mommy and Daddy) and then once a week we pick a name. The person's name we pick gets a special day. On their special day they get to pick their favorite dinner. At dinner each of us will tell them what we love about them and how special they are to our family. A note of love goes in their lunchbox and if their day happens to fall on the weekend (and we have time) they can pick a family outing. It's a big deal to kids and I find it affirms their worth and value. This is one simple thing we do that makes a big impact.
Maybe you can start your own Name Day at your house. Put your own spin on it and make it your own. Let us know how it went. It brightens our day to hear your stories of how you are growing closer and stronger as a family. That's why we started this Angel series - for families to make meaningful memories that last a lifetime.
