When I was younger, I considered spending time with my family redundant. I figure, you’re my family, I KNOW i’m going to see you soon, why make an effort to see you now?
Today, I spent the afternoon spending time with my sister-in-law and my cousin. There was no pressure, no need to pretend on any level…it was awesome. I treasure my family so much more now, I look forward to the times that we can steal a couple of hours away from the world together and commune.
My spirit feels lighter and I feel rejuvenated. What’s not to love?
