It’s easy (and fun!) to remember the exciting anniversaries and special dates in our lives—wedding anniversaries, birthdays, dating anniversaries, first-day-at-a-new-job anniversaries, heck, anything that gives us a reason to celebrate! But this post via Adulting served as a great reminder of the importance of remembering our loved one’s sad anniversaries, too, by actually marking them in our calendar and reaching out with an encouraging text, phone call, or card to let them know they are not alone on their difficult day.
We loved this simple advice in the post: “…when it [the anniversary] comes (and it’s appropriate based on this friend’s personality), just send a text, “Hey, I know this is a hard day. I love you and I’m here to talk or eat ice cream with you or whatever you need.”
We don’t have to go to extravagant lengths to remind the ones we love that we are there for them. The simplest of acts can serve in more powerful ways than we realize. Allow this post to encourage you in the way it encouraged us by making intentionality a priority in your relationships.
