I took the day off work today to spend time with my two little loves after a week of intense preparation for my Christmas shoot.
We baked muffins together, had a dance party, went out to the park, snuggled up for a nap together, and met daddy after work for some shopping! After dinner, we turned the table into congas as we banged our way through a song where each member sang a line.
Uncontrollable laughter filled the air. Work was far from my thoughts.
If you've been keeping up with me, you've probably already learned that I do nothing better than reflect. So, of course, tonight I spent some time replaying the events of the day.
It took me back to my childhood and something I learned very well from my parents. They taught me to be "desprendida." The dictionary defines it as being unselfish, detached, and open-handed.
My parents did that well. There was nothing they couldn't live without; not their money, not their status, not their possessions.
As they day went on today, I realized that I often allow myself to get too attached to things that lack true worth. In light of eternity, what will determine how successful I am is the type of children I raise.
Today, I choose to hold on to only two things:
1. For my heart to be right with God
2. To be the loving wife and mother my family needs me to be
Won't you make the choice with me too?
