Love

I also tell my older kids when they complain about having to play a board game with their younger brothers or basket ball or read a book they don’t feel like reading, the list goes on and on, that, “Someone did that for you.”  Then I smile because the older ones now understand that I don’t like card games or board games and yet I have played thousands with them.  I really don’t like cartoons.  Didn’t even like them when I WAS a child, yet I have watched them.  Sometimes the things that someone needs you to do are things that you don’t like or want to do.  It’s okay…do it anyway.  My words to them are a reminder that, when you love someone, you do things for them and with them to show that love.
