Last week I shared with you this post about a great quote from Mother Teresa. Well, this past weekend I was able to put it into practice! First of all, I don't want you to get the wrong idea. I'm not tooting my own horn, just showing you a practical way to put love into action. Trust me, I fail at this all the time!
My husband ran his second marathon yesterday! It was an incredible accomplishment, and in many ways I feel like our entire family ran the marathon. Okay, well maybe not quite ran the marathon, but we did participate. For anyone who has ever trained, you know that athletes don't just show up on the day of the event, but they put many months into the preparation. For our family this meant looking at weekly schedules for "running time", setting the alarm for 5:00 AM, missing certain events, planning courses, running Gatorade to different locations, doing lots of laundry, etc.
So, my girls and I decided that we would make t-shirts for the race. Last year we made signs and we were afraid that it might rain, so we thought the shirt idea might be a big hit. My husband loved it!!!! Thanks to Hobby Lobby you can get some colorful t-shirts at a very reasonable cost. Here is a pic of me with my girls after the race.
Many times the little things we do, mean so much. One doesn't have to spend a lot of money to show love. What are some of the things you have done lately, to show love to others?
