Not too long ago I discussed the many uses of . This week while working on my blog, John 6:12, “And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost”, compelled me to linger on leftovers and scraps just a little bit longer, on not wasting what God has so abundantly given to us. Jesus’ display after feeding the 5,000 gave a perfect example of being thankful in the little things, the scraps as well.
What are you doing special for your Wife?
1. Massages/Rubs:Rub her feet, her back, wherever she always craves to receive a massage. Don’t just give here a basic massage, truly treat her with candles and some special lotion or oils. This is the one day out of the year just dedicated to LOVE so pull out the stops. If she has a favorite lotion, try to get that specific lotion for her.
work you have to finish, the work left undone at your job, the friends, the family, take a complete break and focus on her.
But women now your time to weigh in?
What do you find to be the sweetest thing that your husband has done for you?
As Valentine’s Day grows ever closer I will be spending more of my time trying to come up with the most creative Valentine’s Day dates and ways to surprise my wife. As I work on this I will be preparing to put out a list on February 7th of at least 10 special dates or ways to surprise your spouse or wife as frugally as possible. This should still be plenty of time for you saps out there to make the most of Valentine’s Day.
Well the New Year is already in full swing and I have been working to squeeze in time to write up a little something about New Year’s resolutions. I think everyone has some sort of New Year’s Resolutions, but personally I don’t like calling mine resolutions, but simply goals. I think planning S.M.A.R.T. Goals is a much better game plan and more specific so I feel that I will be more likely to complete them than the typical resolution. As I typically do I decided to create a new printable for my goals. So check out the goals I have listed below so far and my printable.
If you like the SMART goals form then check it out as an editable on Etsy.com or you can write up your goals following this simple acronym:
Specific – What
Measurable – How can I tell it’s complete (Saved $1000, etc)
Attainable – Is it realistic? (Unrealistic – fly to moon, etc)
Relevant – Why?
Time – When will it be done?
Although I have all sorts of little goals that I have throughout the year I don’t think that I shall bore you with them all. The one main thing I work on through January is preparing for my finances throughout the year and one of the best ways for me is utilizing a simple Annual Bill Tracker so every month I can cross off a bill when it is paid or mark it as auto paid. NOW UNTIL END OF JANUARY my personal Annual Bill Tracker will be downloaded below.
Keep an eye out the next couple of months I will be working to release my new eBook called Home Made Dads, which is going to be small mini books the first one is supposed to be a quick kitchen guide to help busy dad’s when they’re in a pinch for time or ingredients to help them get food on the table. Watch for the sneak peak and if you comment on this post, tell me what your New Year’s goals or resolutions, and I will put you in a drawing to win a printable package and the opportunity to help provide feedback for the unfinished book. Keep tuned for more as the tax season comes around I will be working on more printables like I do every time I need a new
