Quality Time

Saturday, June 07, 2014

One of my goals this year is to spend more quality time with people I care deeply about. One of these people is my youngest daughter, Sherry. She is the child that is due any day now with my first grandchild. I realize that once this baby is born, her time will not be her own for awhile.

I sat here this morning on the computer and realized that I, indeed,have spent a lot of quality time with her in the past month. There are a lot of special memories that I have of this month. I am so grateful that I have done this, even though it didn't seem like I planned it. It just happened.

This realization confirms that if I put a little more effort into spending time with those I love and care for , I can do a lot of fun things. Spur of the moment will be perfectly acceptable. So, I vow to take some time during each week to say: okay, it's the day to do something with ______! Something for me to get excited about.

Each and every day is a new gift that we're given and I'm so happy to hear you're super enjoying yours! Love it and I'm excited to hear when your new grandchild enters this World! You're going to be the best Grandmother! emoticon
