Here is a question that a lot of people seem to be overlooking these days: What is family?
Everyone is so busy with their individual lives that the family unit has essentially become extinct. Parents work while kids are in school or daycare most of the day then off to various activities after school. On weekends, many parents go on date nights & socialize with friends for time away. The week goes by without much family time, time together as one unit. Have we ever thought how much time is really spent with our families as a whole?
We have a different attitude than most. We don’t require a lot of time away from our kids. In fact, we prefer that we are together the majority of the time. Don’t get me wrong, we do venture out sans kids once in a while. Usually we end up talking about them the whole time. They’re still young, too. I think when they get a little older, things may change a bit & we may find ourselves desiring time away. Or maybe not. All I know is that we tend to spend more time together than we do apart. The four of us act as one. We are family.
Family is important. Think of the people you know in life who are happy, content souls. Usually they come from a strong family unit, otherwise have often climbed their way to happiness with quite a bit of struggle and strife. Family is the core, the root to possibility and hope. Family encourages dreams.
Take a step back. Let’s look at our time. It’s easy to forget when our busy lives take over our routine & things may not be the way we intended. Are you spending sufficient time with family in the way you want?
