I watched a show that I haven’t watched in a long time, wife swap. I’m doing chores around the house, listening to the craziness going on in these different houses because of lifestyle changes the families don’t like. Jokingly, I told my kids we should do the show and they would have a new woman in the house for 2 weeks. Quickly both of my kids screamed NO! I said, “hey, some of these moms are all fun, no work.” My sweet kids “but we love you, you’re the best!” I know what you must be thinking, trust me I was thinking it too. What do they want? What have they done? Hmmmm???? But, for real, it got me thinking about how much I love my family and my lifestyle. It got me thinking of how much we tend to take for granted everyday. It made me wonder if I show my family enough how much I love and appreciate them. I was thinking about how much I love my husband, and if I show him enough appreciation. Love your life and appreciate your family. There will always be tough days, aggravating days, emotional times, and times where it just seems like know one cares and why do you bother. But remember, this is YOUR life! Embrace it, love it, live it and appreciate it. If you have to make a few changes, do it. But, love and appreciate the ones living it with you. It’s a tough ride, but it’s so much better with the ones you love.
