We have a new tradition in our family and it revolves around a healthy, nutritious little baked creation called a donut.
How did Donut Dursday come about, you ask?
Well it's quite simple. I have a 15 month old son named Gannon Nelson White and he is a tremendous source of happiness in my life. He eats all kinds of healthy foods all the time so of course I was looking to shake things up a bit and give my better half, Sheena White, a reason to roll her eyes at me (humored, with a partial smile).
I showed up one Thursday morning with a sprinkled Donut from the Race Track gas station and Gannon's face had quite the confused look when I plopped it down on his breakfast tray. Off the top of my head I said, "It's Donut Dursday!" And it stuck.
It's goofy, it's fun and I think days like Donut Dursday are absolutely necessary for individuals, but even more so for families.
It gives you something to look forward to in the week.
It gives an amount of decompression from stress.
It brings your family together (or friends or coworkers).
It creates memories.
Things like Donut Dursday are the bricks and mortar to a relationship.
I encourage you to take a minute, get creative, find your Donut Dursday idea and run with it! Doesn't matter if it's a stupid name or a goofy concept. If you dont care to find your own idea, use mine! Your family will love it and when you show up with donuts in any situation, suddenly, you are a HERO!
Be a HERO.
There is nothing like it when my boy gets to pick his donut from the box and then gets to make a mess enjoying himself. He loves it. I love it. And Sheena loves it as long as it's after he eats his normal healthy breakfast. *wink
Speaking of my better half, Sheena White is an excellent online marketing expert and is very knowledgeable in the ways of social media and sales copywriting. If you have any need for her services, you can reach her through her website www.sheenawhite.com.
