Back around Mother’s Day, Cameron, the 7 year old, asked why there was a Mother’s Day and a Father’s Day but not a Kid’s Day. So my wife and I have been talking about how and when to do celebrate this with our kids.

For a a couple of weeks, we have been planning on celebrating Kids Appreciation Day today. While not an official holiday, we believe that our children should never have a doubt that we love and appreciate them. We are very intentional that our children hear several times a day that we love them. We regularly tell them that we are proud of them. So we aren’t saving up our affection for a special occasion, but we do think that they deserve a day of specialness.

We have planned special activities and gifts for each child today. The first gift of the day are special Bibles with his/her name on it.
