So this weekend has been very relaxing. My daughter and I decided to visit my parents for the holiday weekend. My mom's birthday is Monday and it is not often we get to just come up here for the weekend. So we decided to use our free time this time to see family. My parents moved two hours away so it can be challenging to see them some times. We all have different schedules and then this time of year with the weather it makes it more challenging.
It is crazy how fast time goes and then you realize it has been more than a month since you have visited some one. I realized it has been over a month since I last saw one of my friends and I actually drive by their house every week for other stuff. It is crazy how time goes by so fast and we are so worried about getting things done all the time, we don't actually have time to enjoy life.
It seems more as the time goes by I get more used to not seeing people. It is sad that we put more value on what we are getting done than the people in our lives. It seems that being with the people we care about the most should be our bigger priority. We get so caught up in getting a pay check or what we have to do around the house that we push the rest to the side. I mean really, if you don't do the dishes today what is the harm they will still be there tomorrow and most people now have a dishwasher so it isn't like it is an all day chore like before.
It amazes that with ll this stuff we have to make our lives easier, we have actually complicated it more. We are jam packing more things to do each day. We make it almost impossible to just sit and enjoy life as it is. Just spend time with our family. Enjoy our time with the people we care about the most. When you think about it when those people are gone are the dishes going to be that important? The day of their funeral are you going to not go because there are dishes to do, or are you just going say heck with the dishes I am going. So why wait until their life is over to see them. Why not have today be the day that the dishes can wait and you go spend time with important people now.
