It has been over a week since my last post and part of the reason is the craziness of life getting in the way. As I have moved through these past few weeks, adapting to some life changes, I have come to realize the importance of making sure to keep family as a priority.
As the father of a household, it is easy to get caught up in the idea of the responsibility of providing for the family by helping to make sure there is enough income coming in to take care of all the physical necessities of the household. The more important thing to remember is being present for the family. Yes, the financial aspect is important, but being present is even more so. There are too many examples of a lack of a male role-model in the lives of children in this day and age. The family is the building block of society. If the family is not healthy and strong, in all aspects, then society will follow. Yes, this opens a door to a much deeper discussion beyond what I wish to cover here.
Be busy with the happenings of life, but remember to take time the time to spend with family and enjoy the time together.
