The whole point of these little Weekend Graces is that they are small things. These aren't new and fabulous, pinterest-worthy ideas. They are the little things that speak love in the midst of ordinary life. They are reminders to slow down and serve the people we love most in simple, lovely ways.
Our home needed that this week. It has been a busy week. A frustrating week. A tired week. We needed to celebrate a little bit.
I became aware of just how much my family needed this today as I pulled the cookies from the oven and one by one my kids started to ask questions like "who's coming over?" and "who are those for?"
In the busyness of life I somehow forgot to bake cookies just for them.
So this week's Weekend Grace is to bake cookies. Or something else simple that your family loves. Not because somebody is coming over or because you promised to bake something for a potluck, but just because.
