Family Focus Friday – Happy 4th of July
Happy 4th of July, everyone! I want to give a big shout out to our military (both active and retired) for continuing to ensure the freedoms that we celebrate today. I honestly cannot thank you enough for your amazing service!
As I prepare my family for this holiday, we are gathering our food goodies, swimming gear and hopefully 2 kids and heading out the door to spend time with our family. Did you know it’s my in-laws 52nd anniversary too? I mean, wow! You don’t see that anymore! As I reflect on the meaning of this holiday, it all comes down to one thing, family. While some are not as fortunate to spend this time with the ones they love, I know that most of us will be in the very least thinking of them.
Could I offer a challenge for you today?
Make the 4th today more than just being with your family. Turn off the world around you. No phone, no internet, no tv, no radio even if you can help it. Just BE in the moment with them. Soak up every smile, every laugh, every bit of good food and good company. Engage in deep conversations. Watch your kid jump into the pool for the 127th time. Put down the world and make today a real Family Focus Friday.
I will be doing just that. Will you? Happy 4th of July
And yes, you will see some posts going up today…but I won’t be here. And they will certainly be here tomorrow. And the day after….and the day after to enjoy.
