Spend Time With The Ones You Love

Over the past few months, my life has been touch by too many tragedies.  It is difficult to explain to my children why things happen to people we care about.  There is no rhyme or reason to events that happen in our lives. 

As I sit back to reflect on all the changes occurring in the lives around me, only one thought pops into my head.

Spend Time With The Ones You Love

How many times do we worry about not having enough, not doing enough, not being enough?  I constantly worry about keeping my children busy, active, and happy. 

Have you ever asked your children what makes them happy?

I recently asked my oldest what was his favorite part of the summer.  He replied, "Spending time with Daddy and the family."  This is after going to amusement parks, camps, out for ice cream,  movies (I can go on- my kids have had an AMAZING summer....)

So I guess my point is, on the rainy Sunday afternoon, to spend time with your family.  Do something or do nothing.  Just pass some time together and savor the moment.  Life is so unpredictable these days, don't let it pass you by without taking the time to enjoy your loved ones.
