As the busyness of the holidays kicks in, I am reminded of the simple idea of taking time to be with your family/friends.
A case in point – A few years ago, I was digging frantically through my walk-in closet searching for a long lost item. My then three-year-old niece tugged on my sleeve, “Auntie Becky…Auntie Becky.” Irritated, I remarked, “What?” “I love you!” Gulp. I realized she simply wanted my attention at that moment and that item somehow was no longer important.
So, I encourage you and myself to remember to take time with your loved ones.
