A Necessary Change

Yesterday I realized something.  It wasn't easy to swallow.  But it was true.  I couldn't ignore it.

I need to change a few things around here.

Since our move I've been very busy.  There are lots of house projects, lots of getting things settled, lots of responsibilities.  What there hasn't been, is lots of time lingering around the supper table talking, taking bike rides and evenings playing Uno on the family room floor.

Today all that changes.  

Today I put down my paint brush, step away from the computer, and load everyone into the car.  

Today we spend the day focused on something other than our to-do list.  Today we remember how much we love each other and how much we enjoy spending our days together.  Today we remember Ashley's wit, Amy's smile and Hannah's propensity to sleep through any car ride over twenty minutes.

That's what today is all about.  

Just the four of us.
