Have you ever missed an appointment or an important date like your loved one’s birthday or maybe even your anniversary? (I know! I missed a loved one’s special day last week! Yikes!) A calendar–preferably a print one–will help ensure that you don’t face that shame again, provided you look at the calendar regularly (daily? maybe weekly?) and keep it up to date as needed. Also, God forbid, if for some reason you become incapacitated, your loved ones can help make sense of your family’s current lives and needs if you have an updated calendar. Finally, you can start handing off some responsibility for some things to your spouse or your older kids, right?
