This month, this week, we have a gift.
One extra day, you know it only happens once every four years. It seems like a little something special, something extra.
Who doesn’t want one more day?
One more day to laugh…
to live and be and enjoy this gift of life that we have.
I want to take advantage of this extra day, and really make it count.
What can I do to make this extra day count? Write a letter, engage in a meaningful conversation with a loved one, help someone out, deliver flowers to a friend just because, have a fancy dinner, throw a party, take a detour from the normal Wednesday.
Because this extra day won’t be happening until 2016, it makes tomorrow an extra special event. This day, this February 29th is like a gift then. A special chance to think about doing something that really matters.
I don’t really know for sure what I’ll be doing to mark this leap day. I’m pretty sure it will start with a special breakfast with my family before the older two head to school, and in between school and Wednesday dance lessons and youth group I want to be intentional about how I spend my day. I really want to make it sure it’s special, make sure it counts.
What would you do with one more day?
