Daddy's special day!

Today is my husband's birthday.  Happy birthday!  (I just found out he reads my blog sometimes, so I had to send him a shout-out!)  We were "wasting" some time this morning before we got moving, and I suggested to the kids (who don't understand that they're supposed to let parents sleep in on birthdays) that maybe they should make cards for daddy.  Here's Little Lou's card:

We laughed out loud when we read it.  She told us the best thing about birthdays is the cake!

Later, we went to Chick Fil A for lunch.  CFA is a big deal, because we have to drive 30 minutes to get to the nearest one.  (PLEASE bring one closer!)  We were sitting there eating our chicken...okay, our ice cream...and Little Lou said, "I'm so glad you have a birthday today, Daddy!  You get to be special!"  She went on to tell us that we're really only special on birthdays and holidays.

I've been thinking about that since we left the restaurant.  I want my family, all the way from Daddy down to Stinky, to know they're special EVERY day.  I'm afraid we haven't done the greatest job of celebrating each other each day, and I want to change that.  I want Daddy and Little Lou and Bugsy and Stinky...and even Harrison, the black know that I value and treasure them each and every minute of each and every day.  I'm trying, and will keep trying!  Thank you, Little Lou, for the reminder!

Do you have any special ways you show your family members you value them; that they're special EVERY day not just on birthdays?  Share them here!  I might try to adopt some of them!
