A Few Minutes to Show You Care
| February 25, 2020
You don’t need a ton of time or anything elaborate to show someone you care. Even a small, thoughtful gesture says a lot. Communicating what you appreciate about another person can build them up, remind them that they are important and help to develop a stronger and more trusting relationship.
Take just a few minutes to sit down with a young person in your life and write a short list of what you appreciate about one another. Not a big writer? Try drawing pictures of what you appreciate about each other! However you choose to show care and appreciation is meaningful – it doesn’t have to be big.
