Mindless surfing. Check Facebook...check Instagram....check email...repeat. Urg, this is the worst and I find myself doing it. All. The. Time. I find myself being so concerned about what's going on within the world of Social Media I forget what really matters. Please tell me you can at least relate a bit?
Once I get home from school all Grant want's to do is play with me. I'll be busy emptying the dishwasher, starting dinner and starting laundry, which are all valid reasons for him to entertain himself, but once that's caught up it's time for me to put down my phone and truly be present. I could use the excuse of winding down and being tired, but there will come a time when Grant quits asking me to play. I need to soak up the time I have.
The same thing goes for my husband. Once Grant is finally to bed Brian and I have only about an hour, maybe hour and a half together before bed. Should I really spend it on my phone??? I think the obvious answer is no.
I know there needs to be a balance between "me time" and family time, but I'm really trying to make an effort to be present with the ones I love. Because, you know what? God is always present, always there for us, always available. He has an endless supply of time to listen to the details of our day, our hopes, our fears. I really want to work to be more like him and unplug from the things that don't matter.
I never thought I'd get so much wear out of a piece as I have this vest! Today I decided to try it with my striped dress and boots, and I really like how it came together. The flurries had just begun when I snapped these pictures quickly. Luckily, it didn't stick around! Spring can't come soon enough!
