This week I am so thankful for quality time with my family... with my husband and with my children. The last couple of months have found us all in places and in circumstances that have left us with very little good time together as a family. I have been pre-occupied with some concerns I have over small situations, my husband has needed to be away from home quite a bit, my kids are in the midst of activities with school and friends, and then we've just had a alot of "stuff" that needed to be done.
The next two weekends it looks like we are going to get some good time together where we can all do some fun activities together and we can just have some good "us" time. I am so looking forward to this... time where we can just be together without all the daily interruptions. I'm going to push aside all my daily worries and pre-occupations, we're not going to think about work or laundry or dirty dishes or anything else. It's just going to be about being together and oh, how my mind and my heart need this time. It is ALWAYS so refreshing to me... both mentally and physically. And, as we are gearing up quickly for holidays and all the busy-ness that comes with this time of year... I am going to enjoy our time together to the fullest and "fill myself up".
I pray each of you can enjoy some of this wonderful family time over the next few weeks, as well!
Thank you, Lord, for family!
