“Mom, come sit with us.”
“In 5 minutes, kids.”
However, sometimes 5 minutes actually means 30 minutes or more.
When was the last time you sat down on the couch with your children, and just that – sit?
With everyone’s hectic schedule, it is so nice to take time to just sit next to each other – under a warm blanket.
You will be surprised by the conversation that results from a simple act of snuggling with your kids.
“Are you happy?” is the question I frequently ask my kids, and they reply with questions.
“Mom, how do you know that what you’re doing in life is making you happy?”
“How old were you when you found happiness?”
“Do you know what makes you happy?”
“Mom, I am not sure if my job or career choice makes me happy. I can pay my bills, and buy "things" that make me happy. But, am I happy?
