I caught myself on Monday (yes, I said Monday!) saying "I can't wait until Friday!" Oh my goodness and then within seconds I heard my grandmother's voice echo in my head..."Don't wish your life away!" I started to laugh at that memory...
So although I'm singing TGIF I need to remember not to wish my life away and neither should you. Weekends are wonderful and allow us additional time with our family and friends yet if we are so busy during the week we are depriving ourselves and them of this preciousl gift of time and togetherness...it is OUR schedules that need a healthy review.
I'm in the process of cutting back extra-curricular activites to allow more time for my family and daily writing. God has called me to write...I need to be obedient. God has called us to be with and there for our families...I need to be obedient.
I pray you relish the weekend festivities with your family while considering how you can celebrate each other
