I’ve looked at the time other families spend together and thought, “Aw, that’s so nice. I wish my family was like that. That’s precious family time.”
When it came to my family, I complained when we had the chance to spend time together. Or I was on my phone. Or I didn’t care. Mostly I didn’t care. Bad attitude.
This winter break, even if my family was doing things that weren’t my favorite, if we were all present, I tried to think of it as precious family time. Because it was.
I’m thankful for the time I’ve gotten to spend this break shopping, puzzling, watching the Bachelor, and adventuring with my family. The effort I’ve made to be fully present in my time with them has been so worth it. Thanks for putting up with my terrible attitude family. You’re my kind of people.
