Well I didn't find day 6 to hard to handel, because I already was keeping busy with changing those things in live.
I want to spend more time with God each day, because in the past I was like most I guess, only coming to him when I was having a difficult time. Sometimes thanking him for all the good in my life. I should thank him more often, in fact I make it a point to start each prayer with thanking him for all the good things in my life, because there just are so many good things.
I want to spend more quality time with my children. Yes, I'm always there for them, but I'm just always there for them. Not doing anything with them. So that's what I started doing. Besides that I want to more actively tell them about God and what a great friend he is to have on your side.
I need to spend more time on my personal growth, because all during my marriage it feels I have been standing still there. I was 22 when we got married, already had my daughter then. I quit university, because of all of that and started working, worked for 6 years in insurrance. Past four years have been a stay at home mom, with the occassional job cleaning other peoples houses. Want a bigger challenge now, because it's not very stimulating work, cleaning other peoples houses.
My family and friends need to know how much I appreciate them, so I need to spend more time on that.
Well those are the main things, there are some minor ones to, but I won't sum them up here.
Well yesterday I got home from my two week time-out. My kids were still awake, so I gave them great big hugs. I still had to give my husband his present, he was surprised, but he liked it.
Well that's all for now. Today's challenge is going to be a though one, I already know I'm going to cry when I write the possitives and negatives down. Let you know how it went this evening.
Bye for now
Quality time with your children... Teach them what you learn from your journey. I truly wish my parents (and more parents) would teach their children the true meaning of kindness, selfishness, unconditional love etc... Instead we learn to follow our hearts as we are told and look what it does.
Good words, Sean.
Its the truth. If I would have been truly taught this by my parents, my life would have been so much easier. I would not have been without the Lord for so long.
