Like many of the moms who live along the gulf coast, I'm preparing for a storm. As I'm assembling bottled water and canned food and candles, I'm thinking of all the other moms who are in the same boat. It's on my heart today to remind us all to comfort with our touch. The next few days may be pretty scary, but we have the power and responsibility to offer love and comfort to our families by simply offering our touch. So snuggle your kids, nestle your head into your husband's shoulder. Squeeze your husband's arm, ruffle your son's hair, place your palm on your daughter's cheek. Speak the physical touch love language, even in times of trouble. Especially then.
