Leah's note.....

You matter because of your daily interactions with kids! I hope you embark on your challenge next week in letting 3 kids and fellow co-workers/friends know, with a sticky note, how they matter to you. Perhaps this will carry over to your personal world. I know when I told Blake, my husband, that he mattered to be for taking the kids to baseball practice I caught him off guard and he was touched. Often times we take those people who are close to us and/or in our daily lives for granted. This challenge has forced me to ensure that others know how I care about and appreciate them. As we go into the weekend be sure to find JOY! Find something, do something, watch something, read something, etc. that matters to you and brings you JOY! Have a GREAT weekend!
