It’s crazy that I feel so much busier at home now more than ever
I thought it would be a peaceful time, with not much commute, but it seems I have so many ideas and thoughts and etc. etc.
My daughter wants time with me, and I find myself consistently asking for a few minutes, and a few minutes…that I never get around to actually listening to that important thing she wanted to share.
Lately I’ve been thinking about Tony and Lauren Dungy’s book – Uncommon Marriage
I remember reading about when their kids were toddlers and how life felt so hectic and busy… and how by the time the kids were grown up, everyone had their own lives…and they missed those moments when all the kids wanted were opportunities to cuddle and chat
I’m reminded that I can’t take these moments for granted – the high-pitched screams and giggles. The forever requests to sit on your lap. The random kisses and hugs, I can’t take that for granted.
Because life seems to keep flying by quickly…
So even though you may be feeling even busier at home, and perhaps even overwhelmed, I guess I’m encouraging you to remember that nothing lasts forever – so if there’s anything, anything at all you’re enjoying about this season, then grab it, cherish it and don’t take it for granted.
And if you feel yourself starting to feel bad because you may have missed out on some opportunities in the past few weeks – please let that go…it’s a new day, and a new opportunity to become the person you would like to be.
In the meantime, please excuse me while I ask my child to turn down her music for the 100th time, so I can get some work done!
