..and just like that….if he decides he wants to get in the sandbox, he just takes off his shoes.
Chris & I were talking one day about balance and how we are encouraged to FIND time…MAKE time….GET IT DONE. We aren’t really making time though….We are BORROWING time from somewhere else. That’s what makes it so hard.
I know it may seem silly to everyone else, but this was such a big moment for me. Although he has obviously been taking his own shoes off for a little while now, it feels like just yesterday he was asking me to help him. He is now making his own decisions, deciding what he wants to do, and making it happen.
Finding the balance between the daily list of things that need to be done, taking care of yourself and building a dream, & then the need to provide for your family in this fast paced way of life nowadays….somewhere along the lines you also have to find time to make sure you don’t miss these tiny little moments.
I don’t always keep up with my phone & emails like I should. I typically never answer phone calls, and a lot of times it takes me a minute to answer back to texts. My entire timetable for each day is used up. Every hour is planned and I always have some kind of work that needs to be done. So in those moments whenever you may feel like I am ignoring you….this is what is going on. I am subtracting all other time & reconnecting with one of the most important people in this world.
