This is the last hour of my vacation.. And I am sitting here thinking about what this time meant for me and my kids..
… 3 years ago we had lived so far from family that we spent every moment of our vacations with our extended family and cousins.. Enjoying our time.. When we moved home.. It was so great to see everyone so often, that the tradition continued ..
This week, we took our first small family vacation.. Taking our Grandpa will us too.. We spent so much time together bonding and laughing.. it felt amazing. It was good for my kids to only have each other to interact with.. It was so good for both of them..
But it was also good for me..
For the first time in forever? I had no responsibilities.. Nothing to do.. No job or tasks.. And no other souls to tend to.. Just mine .. just my kids.. And it felt really good..
So as I sit here drinking my coffee.. with my less than delicious soy creamer.. I realize that resting is so good for the soul…
I know .. I know.. You are thinking that Disney world and resting don’t go hand in hand.. Crazy crowds.. crazy rides.. Crazy agendas.. It doesn’t sound like resting.. But for me it was
.. There was nothing to clean, nothing to fix, nothing to organize .. No driving.. No multitasking. We did walk almost 100 miles over 5 days.. And we were all tired at the end of the day .. But it felt so good…
.. so resting the soul is good.. And I need to schedule it in again.. Sooner than 15 years this time..
