Ah, Friday, Friday. I love you, Friday. LOVE. How are you, Mamma? Ready for the weekend? Got your carpools, birthday parties and baseball games all planned out? Yep, me too.
In all the busybusybusy, please find one hour to just sit and be, yes? At least one hour. NO phone – the phone is off, gone, out of sight for this entire hour. No TV, no movie, no computer. One hour where you sit with your kids, let them lean on you, crawl all over you, talk to you. One hour, with no thought of laundry or bills or in-laws, deal?
And that husband, if you are lucky enough to have one, him too. Find some time, in all the rushing and the family obligations and the cheering for the kids at the track meet, find some time to look him in the eye, smile and tell him that you love him. If you can snuggle up tonight, after the kids are in bed, with a beer or a glass of wine and tell him why you respect him, better yet.
Busy is awesome. Full lives are great. But without a moment of quiet, busy gets to be frantic. And a couple that works well together is awesome, team power parents! But without that moment of love, marriage, romance, the flame could die out, and you don’t want that. You are husband and wife, not high functioning room-mates, right?
So, this weekend, some busy, some quiet, some romance, deal?
Have fun. Be blessed.
