You know, it shouldn’t surprise a person but I guess it did me. As any busy family, we don’t spend enough time together, and when you do, you realize just how fun it really is.
Brianna and I spent the better part of the afternoon and evening yesterday just doing fun stuff. We went to the park, baked some pastries and a pie, and just had time to talk. She got to run around and have a picnic, then later help make dinner (stir fry, a favorite of her’s).
It was one of the most enjoyable afternoons I’ve had in years. This is what we toil for, this is what family life used to be every day – not just a rare outtake of life. When I take a step back and look at it, I can’t believe we’ve allowed other entities (work) to overtake simple life experiences. It’s a shame, and something I vowed to myself today to change. Radically.
The time passes by too quickly to be taken up by stressful environments of which one can not change.
