Lewis Carroll first coined the phrase ‘unbirthday’. Why wait until it’s someone’s official special day? Make plans to spoil someone, either spontaneously today or in the near future. Surprise them if you know that’s what they like, or pre-warn them if that would make it easier for them to accept your invitation.
Green: Send someone a message to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Amber: Offer to babysit for a couple who don’t manage to get out much. Tell them to be as late back as they like!
Red: Casually ask the person you have in mind what their idea of a special day would be, then do your best to create it for them – even if it’s not your thing.
|“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’” (Matthew 22: 37–39 NIV)|
This morning, as I read the suggestion of treating a friend and finding out what they would like a particular person came to mind. So I put on Facebook a post asking friends what their ideal day out/treat would be, and hoped that this person would see and put something. They didn’t. So I will Just send them a message and see if they fancy a day out sometime when we are both free – or a meal with our husbands.
