As I sit trying to decide my next blogging topic I’m interrupted several times with different questions and conversations about the upcoming trip I am taking to Florida with my 2 daughters and my mom. As I answer the various questions and get a little irritated with the interruption I think, ‘I need this break!’.
We live our lives so wrapped up in the day to day living. Going here, taking one kid there, checking on the details of another’s evening, working, making dinner, cleaning and (as in my case) working on the continuing start up of a business (I am determined to make succeed). In the midst of all of that we have to take some time away and get a break.
In all actuality, I can not wait to take this trip. I just love going places and experiencing the new and different things we find, with my family. The memories that are made will last our entire lives. A break from the usual and all that it contains, is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your family. A moment like this is worth so much more than almost any other gift you can give.
We are going to the beach for 2 days then heading to Universal Studios in Orlando. I am taking my mom, who like me, is slightly obsessed with anything Harry Potter. I can not wait to see her face as she takes it all in. Being there, with her and my kids, will be so very, totally awesome! The crazy thing is, before we even leave for this trip I am looking at plans for a cruise in the Spring. I looooooove my breaks! And I am so thankful that God has blessed me with being able to take them.
But even small breaks and change in the routine can give you these gifts. We all need to be a little selfish now and then and take some time for us. Take some time and get away from the life sucking monotony and breathe a little life back into us. You will be the better for it and all those around you even get to enjoy some of the benefits. It’s a win, win…….so take a break, would ya?!
