Special Touches

My oldest son went camping with a friend's family this weekend. It promises to be a really great time for him. They plan to go swimming, biking, hiking and a whole host of other camping things. But the coolest thing, I thought, was the surprise the mom has in store for the boys. She picked up two new Bionicles from Wal-Mart for them to put together once they settle into their sleeping spaces. How totally cool is that? My son will absolutely beam, I'm sure, when he sees her surprise.

Kids of all ages love surprises. It doesn't have to be something as spectacular as a new Bionicle. It could be a special treat after school, or surprise family outing, or maybe even just some special one-on-one time with a parent or grandparent at a surprise destination. Wouldn't it be wonderful if every child had at least one Special Touch to brighten their day?
