Some days I am running so fast from thing to thing that my full life makes me feel empty.
Some days I have such a long list of things to do that I feel overwhelmed.
Some days I realize I am overwhelmed and empty inside and I decide to to sit on the couch and read to my children instead of going for the super woman award. These connections fill me up emotionally and help me put things in life into perspective. It does great things for the children too.
Life is too short to waste on lists and running around town. Do something that really matters today. Connect with your family. They need it and you need it. Trust me, today was one of those days. :)
On a behavioral note; relationship building time gives everyone a reason to care how things feel at home. There really can't be too much of it. Behaviors improve when relationships are a top priority.
