Earlier this week Mr. Decor announced “I’m off on Friday. Would you like to do something together?”
I immediately felt heartsick.
I am a planner by nature and each week my calendar features a precarious schedule so fully packed that a shifting of events is almost impossible.
But I know what is important.
With work, school, a child on summer vacation 24/7 and a home that has me employed as it’s full time gardener, maid, and chef I could see only one area that could be altered. You are looking at it right now. It’s blogging.
When things like this occur I always like to use the 20 year rule. Have you heard of it?
When faced with a decision you simply ask yourself “What decision will matter or have the most impact on my life in 20 years?”
The process can look like this:
“In 20 years time will I be happier that I spent a day with my husband or that I researched, wrote, and photographed 3 blog posts?”
When put in those terms it’s easy to see the answer. Or at least to me it is.
Eyes on the prize.
I love blogging but there is someone I love more.
So yesterday I spent the day with my husband. We had breakfast in bed. Such fun!
I’m so happy I realized what is truly important because he truly is one of the best dads that I know.
I’m posting a day early so that tomorrow I can give him my full attention as well.
Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads!
“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” ~ Proverbs 31:11-12
