Our Relator!

It has been my greatest joy discovering my children's strengths.  As I continue to learn and grow I am convinced that my Seth is going to have a strong "Relator" theme.  

Relator's love to relate to others.  They enjoy spending quality time with those they already know, and find satisfaction going deeper, getting closer. 

Many times a relator might have a smaller circle of close friendships but those friendships are deep and lasting.  

From the time Seth was a baby he was our child that constantly wanted to spend time with us.  

Example:  If we are watching a show in the evening, you can count on it that Seth is sitting right in between Scott and I.  If I go to run errands he is the child that always wants to go and he beams when I say yes. 

I remember a few years ago I woke him at 4am to help me make Thanksgiving pies.  I knew he would love that special alone time with mom and I was right.  He jumped right out of bed.  I didn't feel guilty that the other boys slept in because they have other wonderful themes, but would not have been thrilled if I had asked them to participate.

One of my goals is to look at my families love languages and strengths and to be purposeful about speaking their language while engaging their strengths.  It ties our hearts together and allows us to grow stronger.   

Today was Seth's turn!
