Priorities don’t stay the same in a day, a week, a year or a life time. If they do, relationships become malnourished.
If I don’t place my personal priorities a side and make room in my schedule for family, memorable moments can’t be made.
My husband and I visited our two grandsons and kept them at the hotel for two nights giving their parents a much-needed rest.
Their grandpa and I worked hard to make memories with our one-year-old and almost three-year-old grandsons. If one wasn’t screaming, the other needed to go potty for the 3rd time in one hour.
Yet, we couldn’t stay serious for long because their giggles, expressions and remarks caused us to laugh and loose our stern look. Plus, their hugs and kisses softened our hearts and filled us up with joy which out shined the stressful moments.
I’ve learned two things from raising four children:
1. Memories can’t be lost, if they’re never made.
2. Once an event becomes a memory and kept in the heart, it will never vanish from your life.
Visiting my two rambunctious, but brilliant and loving grandsons required my full attention. There was no time for blogging, Facebook or Instagram. By night fall, I was exhausted. My grandsons are my only grandchildren at the moment. I pray for energy if I’m blessed with more in the future.
On my watch, my grandsons teach me much about their unique personality and how they see and handle life around them.
Their excitement of what we promised to come shined through their eyes.
This year started on a positive inclined for me. Yet, I have faced some slips.
I decided to look at the down rides as a child does after they’ve slid down the slide.
I will run to the next activity in my life with a glimmer of excitement as I expect a positive incline.
For God, has promised great things yet to come.
I hope you had a great week and may your weekend be an exceptional one with a positive lift.
