As I think about this time of year, I am reminded of my childhood. School was out, so staying up late and sleeping in was the norm. The excitement of Christmas was oozing from everyone… well, at least us kids! My Mom and Dad worked throughout the day, so when we got old enough, we would stay at home by ourselves, which opened a whole new can of worms. My sister and I were … well, I guess NOSEY was the best way to describe it. We always wanted to find out what purchases had been made.
My Mom used true guilt to help prevent some of the looting that was taking place while she was not at home. She would put our items in black trash bags. These bags were sealed with tape and they had a message on them. The message you might ask … Yes, on a piece of paper written with a Black Magic Marker … “GOD IS WATCHING YOU!” Well, that did it for me! My sister… I am not so sure. She was a bit on the sneaky side.
As this week winds down, and we all scurry about, we would like to remind you to focus on the most important things … those things that cannot be bought. Spending time with those you love. Life. A compliment. Words of encouragement. Did I mention QUALITY TIME?
On a side note… Quality time is NOT being in the same room with everyone being on their phones or ipads. I am talking about just talking. Playing a game. Taking a walk together. Use this as a time to connect. Make great memories. I think I am going to take my own advice.
