Encouragement Cards

A few months ago, Noah and I participated in the Happy Day Project. You can read more about it here if you'd like, but basically, we had a task to complete each day to spread a little happiness to someone throughout the week.

What an eye opening and awesome week it was. It is so easy to get caught up in what is going on in our own little world, and often we forget to reach out to those around us. I loved that Noah was able to help me with the project; it opened up opportunities for us to talk about loving people as well as giving with a happy heart. I want Noah to learn from a young age to look beyond himself and see that every day God gives us opportunities to share His love to people around us.

So where does Noah learn this? From the example his mommy and daddy set for him. Yep. God has entrusted us this precious child to teach him in the way he should go. It's a big responsibility. HUGE. I'm so thankful God is with us and that we aren't on our own when it comes to parenting (or with anything in life).

I was reminded of the Happy Day Project tonight when I came across this post sharing some adorable printable cards to give out to mommies who might need a little encouragement. I think it's such a great idea. I'll be heading over to Kinko's first chance I get to print off a stack of these cutesy cards to keep with me. Go get yourself some too!
