Do You Really Spend Enough Quality Time With Your Family?
When I read the post we just posted on KNUE, about the three young East Texas men who lost their lives a car accident, I thought, "Do I really spend enough time with my loved ones?" Wow, I wasn't really expecting to have such a serious thought on a Monday!
The answer to that question is "no." No, I don't spend enough time with my family. I'm a workaholic, a worrier, type A personality, an "it's never perfect enough" kinda person, you name it.
In other words the answer is "no."
I don't want to look back later and think, "if only." So what do I do about it? Well, I guess I better prioritize.
I'm going to talk with my family tonight and see where they are. Do they feel the same way I do? Then, I guess we will go from there.
We certainly can dedicate a night where we have "movie night," "family game night," "take walks together," (we need the exercise anyway) and sitting down and eating a meal together. I think just slowing down and talking about how our days went, and things we are involved in. I guess just being apart of each other's daily life, even if it's in some small way.
I hope I never take my family for granted, because things can happen in the blink of eye. I just want to live in the moment. Guys, this is gonna be very hard for me -- so I am asking for your prayers, and any help you can give me!
