Here’s what we talked about this week.  If you aren’t receiving your THIS FIVE MINUTES each Friday, be sure to sign up!


It’s Military FAMILY Appreciation Month. It’s always nice to support a military spouse by saying, “Thank you for your service,” but what more can you do?

Offer your time.  Have their kids over for a play date so they can take a break. Maybe the lawn looks great but caring for it is just about the last straw. Maybe the fur babies need some extra love while they are at work.

Share their passion. Find out what organizations/programs they think are important and volunteer alongside of them to show you care, too.

Bring a care package. Buy some supplies for the perfect bath (salts, scrubs, bubbles …) or put together a movie night in a basket complete with fun flick, popcorn and snacky movie candy.

Listen. Maybe what they want most is someone to talk to about what is really going on. Just listen.
