Give them your time


It has been a busy week but it has made me realize what having a blog takes. It is commitment, love and energy. It is almost like nurturing a child. You impart more into your child when you give him or her more of your time. You can not expect much when you are always busy for them. That is not to judge parents that have to leave very early in the morning and return late when the little ones are already in bed. It is just a reminder to us that the time we give to our children matters.

They understand that you need to work to put food on the table. However, they need your time. So however small that time maybe that you get to spend with them, make it matter. You shall have given them something to cherish and look forward to.

I pray that as you go about your life, you do not get too swamped to spare a few minutes to bath in the love that your children have to offer as you shower them with yours. It is the small things that count.

  1. I agree with you that even if it’s a small amount of time, they need our time. Time goes by so fast and I can’t say that enough!! Sometimes I get caught up in the tasks and I have to stop and realize that every moment spent with my kids is valuable! I can never get it back. So I have learned to complain less and live in the moment. Thanks for the reminder!!
