Tonight is one of my favorite nights. We call it “Daddy Day.” Asher Crosby and I have been spending a weekly night together the past 4-5 years. I wish I could say I started this tradition with my oldest 3 boys. However, I did learn from them that time goes by way too fast.
Asher turns 10 years old this month. I pray the daddy days I have with him now. Will matter even more deeply to him later in life. We eat, we talk, and we treasure the opportunity to be together. I highly recommend this for your heart and their heart.
You could do this as a parent or grandparent. It gives you a chance to look them in their eyes. To really seek to know what’s going on in their world. It sends a message that you really care and they matter so much to you. Giving your time is a huge demonstration of your love.
