My mother knew how to do this...

When I saw this video I thought ....My Mom was able to do this! (but in her own way)

I think it just came natural for her to love all 8 of us specially.

Either that, or I was her favorite. 
But I think she made us all feel that way.  

Gretchen (author of The Happiness Project) explains how she does it...
It's less than 2 minutes.

Such good advice. All of our children are unique, so of course, they should be loved specially.

This is great advice. I learned this when my children were little, especially when the boys thought I favored their sister the most. I learned that I had to love each individually because even though in some ways they are alike, each is very different and so I love them specifically for who they are.

GREAT INSIGHTS & I love heer communication style! Thanks for sharing because I'm positive I will be sensitive to that human desire to be set apart as unique & special.

I need to remember that.....I am going through the same thing with my girls. It love them each "specially" but I need to tell them why!
