Growing Fonder

As the routines of day to day life keeps us busy, sometimes I have taken things for granted... There are times I have felt like the constant demands of the family to be obstacles to my agenda... But I realize now that I can't move an inch without them and that my life spins around them...

There are times I have given much importance to friends and gatherings while completely ignoring my little children as I busily prepare things for the party days in advance and clean up days after. Sometimes I have been selfish, claiming "My Time" to read a book or to watch a movie or even to write a blog post.

Begining to realize some mistakes of "not spending quality time" with the kids. Now that they are growing up at full swing, I am determined to spend as much time as possible with them, taking them places, doing things with them, putting my agenda aside till they are in bed at night...

Truly they are amazing kids and I am so blessed to have them. Praying for their safe return; and growing fonder as I do... It is very true that "absence makes the heart grow fonder"!

When children are not around, parents think about quality time with them. IMHO, the parents can spend quality time with kids if they are entitled to 'me' time. I think Einstein said something like "Life is like riding bicycle. To keep balance, you must keep moving." I rephrase it slightly...to keep moving, we got to have balance.
