Spending Time with Family

Have you ever wondered why the expression is 'spending time'? To me 'spending' implies a cost, a sacrifice of self and giving of my time to others. It is costly, not in monetary terms but other things deemed less important - like writing blog posts must give way to what matters most. So as this New Year commences I am spending time with these precious people - my family. Looking after them, cooking for them, eating with them, playing with them. Jumping on the trampoline with little ones. Watching them splash in the waves at the beach and seeing the delight of a two year old boy watching a fireworks display on New Years Eve. Going to the movies with my husband on the evening of our wedding Anniversary. I have so much to tell you but so little time but I will return in 2012 with new and encouraging posts.

Happy New Year from my family to yours!

Have fun, those precious children are only young once. We can't go back in time to make up for what we have lost.

Happy New Year,

In Gods Grace
