My son and daughter went to a youth retreat this weekend. As I picked them up, I found myself checking another item off of my parental ‘to-do list’ and almost missed the privilege of getting to be a part of their lives. Does that ever happen to you? In the busyness of life, it’s so easy to see parenting as one long ‘to-do list’ and forget about relationship.
I’m so grateful for my kids and for the chance to know them and love them. In the words of Aerosmith, I don’t want to miss a thing. I can’t believe I just referenced Aerosmith. Oh, well. Now you have to look that song up on YouTube (like I just did) and then turn it off because Steven Tyler is just freaky-looking. You’re welcome.
