For those of you worried that you aren’t organized enough, clean enough, stylish or even fun anymore. Remember your kids aren’t interested in how you look or how much is on the calendar. They are interested in time with you.
When I asked my kids what was some of their favorite moments I got enlightening responses.
Their favorite recent adventure was the unexpected beach moment. We had no towels, no sun and no swimsuits. We were driving around trying to find a new beach for next weekend and low and behold we found it. So what could we do but dive in without swimsuits. It hadn’t quite rained yet but was dark and promising a down pour. The water was cool but the temperature was in the 90’s. No sooner had we waved everyone into the water, when it began to thunder. With no towels we had to dance in the rain and splash in the water puddles to get off all the sand. The kids sat on their or their father’s shirts and we laughed the whole way home remembering how ridiculous we looked dancing and shaking in the rain.
Lord Jesus help me to remember to put fun into our lives this summer. Help my family and I to seize joy in every moment we can. You in-trusted us with our children help us to appreciate the blessings You gave us. Help us to see the precious moments as they unfold and guard them within our hearts. God you are great in all You do. We love and need You in our lives. amen.
