My family has had our RV out at a local campground for almost 2 weeks now. There have been sleepovers with friends, time spent swimming , kayaking, hiking, biking, hanging out around the campfire and lots of time spent reading.
Needless to say there hasn’t been as much time for blogging. An hour at the observation center each morning (the only area of the campground with WiFi) and a 1/2 hour in the evening. There was also a full afternoon spent at home catching up on laundry while I wrote posts for this week.
I love that my job allows me to be this flexible, but still even with it’s flexibility I fell short this week of finishing all 5 posts that I typically write in one week by one post, which would be the post for today (I have a thrifty post ready for tomorrow).
Instead of writing a blog post for today, I went kayaking with a friend and caught up on her life.
Instead of writing a blog post for today, I sat around a campfire talking with my kids.
Instead of writing a blog post for today, I took my daughter and her friend out kayaking to a nearby island where they spent over an hour swimming and laughing.
Instead of writing a blog post for today, I went running with my son.
Instead of writing a blog post for today, I made memories.
I want to encourage you to do the same. What things in your life can you cut out for just a little while, to make room for a little more memory building time? DO IT. Grab those children, those friends, and take the time to build memories, in memories relationships are built and in relationships life is lived.
