I watched a joyful reunion yesterday, and the message was: you only have the time you have and you’d better make it good time.
Obviously, it’s a message that resonates for me. We did great family weekend stuff growing up. But I watch myself not spending enough time with the people I love. (This working weekend thing does interfere. But at least Steve and I both work weekends.)
It’s so easy to be busy, to shoot off in our own directions, but time spent getting to know each other and enjoy one another’s company is crucial, i believe, to our development and sense of self-worth. So grab those folks and hang out. Creating family: sweet, sweet, sweet (and occasionally crazy!).
Peace is a great thing to have at home.
