Cherish Those Precious Moments. Life Is Not Always About Work.
During today's temultous and challenging times we often overlook the real reasons why we all work so hard to provide the comfort and joy for the ones we love.
Take the time to spend time with those who you love and cherish. Don't get so absorbed with your work that you let the years pass you buy only to wake up one day and realize that you never really got to know those things most endearing.
Having 5 children and 12 grandchildren can be an awesome and most rewarding challenge when it comes time to spending QUALITY time with each and every one of them. With a family as large as ours we cannot always engineer get together's where we have the opportunity to bring the whole family together all at once. But we try.
In the photo above are three of our 7 granddaughters enjoying a surrey ride on the beach in Coronado where we are staying this weekend to help our youngest daughter while she and her husband attend a conference and retreat here at the Lowes Coronado Bay Resort in "America's Finest City", San Diego.
Unfortunately they were not able to attend this years family reunion in Cabo (photo below) which as been an annual tradition in our family for the past 25 years. So Poppy & Tana figured out a way we could spend quality time with them anyway. Hanging with the kiddies is what it's all about at the end of each and every day.
No matter how you do it...............Just do it! At 66 years old and not getting a day younger I can safely say that had I not taken the time to get to know my precious family they would have grown and gone and never had the opportunity to get to know Poppy. Kids forget very quickly. It's up to us to make sure they don't. Make sure you reach out and touch those who mean the most this Christmas and Holiday Season.
