I want more time in my life to be still, quiet and spent with my family. “Time” is so precious and unless I consistently review my priorities it can slip away just like that. I can talk about priorities all day long but until I take action they are just words.
Certain environments create more of an opportunity for reflection and quiet conversation. An easy one for me has been to purchase an outdoor fireplace. They come in a variety of styles and sizes so finding the perfect one for our home was easy.
Sometimes after dinner as the sun sets we will gather around the fire and talk about our day. My kids usually ask if we have all the makings for smores. And if we don’t they are happy to roast marshmallows or just sit back and watch the fire.
What a challenge to make time with my family a priority and when I do the reward is always instantaneous.
