Reflecting On Father's Day & Making This a Good Week
Good morning everyone!
Father's Day is a complex holiday. For me, it's a day to express gratitude and to spend time to with my amazing and supportive dad.
For many of my friends it's a difficult day. Some of them lost their dads long before their time, some didn't grow up without a dad in their lives, and some have strained relationships or have even had to remove their dads from their lives.
My Monday morning started differently this week. After a busy weekend spending Saturday with my dad, volunteering at the Humane Society both days, and general errands, I hadn't spent a lot of time with my wife and she said that she needed some extra hubby time last night. I made a nice dinner to make up for things a bit, but unfortunately I fell asleep very quickly from the busy weekend.
This morning I made it a point to spend an extra 15 minutes in bed with her to get some extra snuggling in before I went to work. Sure, I got in about 30 minutes later than I normally do, but it was well worth it seeing her slight smile and hearing that content breathing and sigh when I said we should stay in bed a bit longer than normal.
The little things in life are more important than the daily grind. Take that extra 15 minutes in the morning to spend some time with your loved ones and pets. Work will be there no matter when you get in, those little moments won't.
