Why It’s Important To Have
There are so many stressors on every member of the family today, financial, relational, and work/ school related stress to name a few. The home is suppose to be an environment that will shield us from those stresses. It is our safe place and shelter from the world around us. It is also the place to build those lasting childhood memories. How sad for time to just fly by because of our busy lives and have regrets about the time spent with our children. We can’t spend our time living only for the weekend or the vacation time. We need to incorporate fun into our day to day. When children are young get into the habit of making family meals something that you do together. Take that opportunity around the table to talk but also don’t miss out on the opportunity for laughing and just plain silliness. It is amazing the stress relief of a really good laugh. Taking opportunities to look for fun also sets the tone for the atmosphere of your family. What will your children feel as they think about their childhood? Will it be fond memories of great family times or will it be memories of wishing for something different.
Make sure to not take yourself to seriously and just have fun with your family.
