Time. Time with my children, and my family. Life sometimes feels long, but in reality it is only a small speck on a very large timeline. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. So if I only had one more day on this earth, who would I want to spend in with? My family.
Do I enjoy time away from them, sure I do! I’m not crazy. But the older I get and the more time I spend with my family, the more I WANT to spend with them. To relish the small amount of time I have with them especially while they are so young. I might not notice some times how quickly my older kids are getting on a day to day basis, but I know how fast it went. I see how fast it’s going with my youngest ones, who I could spend a couple days away from them and easily notice new changes in them. They are growing so fast and time will eventually take them away from me in only a few short years. Being a SAHHM gives me more opportunity to get my fill of them, and also helps me guide them as they will continue to grow and face the realities of life.- but that’s another reason I can share later.
