My blog is early this week – as I’m going to be taking ‘time out’ – we’re visiting one of my brothers – and then on to spend time with old friends.
There is always a lot on social media at this time of year – about friends and families taking time out – it’s during these times that memories are made – memories that last a lifetime – that become a very precious part of who we are.
We’re not always aware of the value of these times – but they are the moments that will be treasured – that stay forever in our hearts. What strikes me the most – about these times though – is the value of people simply being together – of spending time with one another.
Our lives seem so full that often we don’t make the opportunity to simply take time to spend with others – with no distractions – but giving ourselves to enjoying the company of others – having fun together – talking – listening – relaxing – no particu;ar agenda.
We often say we are too busy – and yes – life can be very busy – but lets make the choice that we will never be too busy that we can’t carve out that time to spend for those that matter in our lives.
Time is a very precious gift – and can mean far more to others than anything else we can give them – so – take time out – chat – listen – laugh – share life – and in doing so not only will you give them the best gift you can give – but make memories – to last a liftime.
