I realized yesterday that I had gotten back on that Crazy Train of Busyness. We’ve had a couple of unexpected things happen lately that have taken the majority of my physical and mental energy.
The last few weeks I’ve been ‘short’…OK, downright rude to my husband, the man that God created me for; the one I am suppose to be doing good to, the one I am suppose to be praising and RESPECTING, not rolling my eyes and adding my snarky opinions.
I went to bed last night and realized that I haven’t read a story to Peach just for fun, or played with her, or pushed her on the swing in several days.
I realized that I had slipped back into my old nature of being so task focused that I was not enjoying anything about my life or family. Not only was I miserable, but so was everyone around me, and most of it was my fault. When I get like this I find faults with everyone and everything.
It’s easy when unexpected things… stressful things, happen to loose sight of what is important; to forget to connect with the people around you, not just take care of them.
Why do I do this? Why is this a lesson I have to learn over and over again?
We women hold so much power with our attitude and even in the tone of our voice. The harmony of the home weighs much on our shoulders.
So if you are on the Crazy Train of Busyness, I encourage you to stop, even if just for a few minutes each day, a couple of hours would be even better and
look your people in the eyes,
connect with them,
SMILE at them,
read a silly book with them,
walk with them
and then go give your husband a sincere kiss.
Remember the gift of relationship, the ‘task’ will be right there where you left it once you have done the more important things…love them with your time!
