“I See You”

Today my friend reminded me to encourage my husband and children by telling them what I see. I love the idea of texting or verbally telling people in my life what I see them doing that I want to congratulate, compliment, and honor. So many times we get stuck in attitudes of criticism, disappointment, advice-giving, or attempts to improve other people. Instead, we can affirm them.

I see how you handled that . . . 

I see you and all the ways you served . . . 

I see how you gave your best there . . . 

I see how you made a great choice. . . 

I see how you were kind then. . . 

I see how you were the mature one. . . 

I see how you offered help there. . . 

I see how you were gentle and patient there. . . 

I see how you helped. . . 

I see how you were loving. . . 

If you haven’t told your spouse or children what you see today, try to tell them three things you see about them.

And then do it again tomorrow.
